Ford Transit Cargo Spark Plugs at Joe Cotton Ford near Streamwood, IL 60107

The spark plugs on newer vehicles can last nearly a decade before being replaced, but older models don’t have the same advantage. Spark plugs are something many people neglect to regularly maintain. Whether old or new, it’s important to check your Ford Transit Cargo spark plugs near Streamwood, IL 60107, every six months because a damaged spark plug can impair your fuel efficiency or even cause internal damage to your engine. This means it’s important to get them checked at least twice a year and Joe Cotton Ford near Streamwood, IL 60107 is always happy to do so!

While everyone has most likely heard of a spark plug, not everyone knows its function. Generally used to deliver an electric current from the ignition system to the combustion chamber, it’s imperative that these metal threaded shells are functioning at high capacity. They’re comprised of several parts that may become damaged throughout the years, from the central electrode to the porcelain insulator. The central electrode usually has a resistor and a heavily insulated wire that reaches the ignition coil – electrically grounded, this system is a tried and true way to get engines humming at the turn of a key, or the push of a button!

A lot can be determined from inspecting the Ford [model}’s spark plugs near Streamwood, IL, including the conditions within a running engine. The tip of a spark plug can take on several different appearances, all of which remark on build-up and conditions inside the cylinders. The wrong spark plug can lead to several different issues, considering that they are created to work in tandem with your engine. Opting for one with the wrong cold or hot index can cause premature ignition, can hurt performance and gas mileage, and can also cause dirt and grime build-up within your engine. Inappropriate functioning can occur without any notice, either, which is one more reason that bringing your vehicle in for regular maintenance to Joe Cotton Ford near Streamwood, IL 60107 is highly encouraged!

Our professional and knowledgeable technicians are well-versed in the needs of your Transit Cargo and, thanks to our in-store parts department, we always have the original manufacturer part on hand to replace you old one, should that be necessary.

We have had my wife's Excursion serviced at Joe Cotton since we purchased it from your dealership and of course my wife is the one that brings it in when needed. The service has always been very good and the advisors are helpful and friendly. However, on this particular visit my wife was raving about her experience working with a new advisor that she had not previously met, Max G. She commented how friendly and warm his personality his, how comfortable she was speaking with him and genuinely felt respected and appreciated as a valued customer and more importantly, as a person. Again, all of the advisors we have worked with over the years have been wonderful but Max is just one of those people you want to know. She will most likely be asking for him by name on her future visits.

I spoke to Max for service on a recurrin... I spoke to Max for service on a recurring issue with HVAC. He was polite and very helpful. He was able to get a loaner vehicle for me to use for the day.the day. From the invoice, it looked like the technician Mike K went through a lot of work to ensure the problem was corrected. So far, the HVAC is working.

"Part had to be ordered. Was notified by mail when part was in and called to set up an appointment. Zak told me it would be maybe a 2 hour job. 1 1/2 hours later it was done. When does that ever happen? Very pleased with Zak and the professional service. Have bought many cars in my lifetime, not just Fords but never received this kind of service. Keep up the good work guys, I change cars often!!"
