What Does that “Check Engine??? Light Mean? Could be as Simple as a Worn Spark Plug.

If the “check engine” marker in your vehicle lights up, don’t panic – although it could be a warning of a major problem, it could also be as simple as a worn spark plug. A check engine light is designed to turn on whenever any problem – and we mean ANY problem – with an engine is detected. Before assuming that you’re looking at a significant and costly repair, check a few minor things. One common cause of a check engine marker light-up is spark plug wires gone bad. As a spark plug ages, its wires begin to develop tiny cracks that can allows bursts of electricity to escape rather than traveling from the spark plug’s tip to the electrode. This can cause your engine to misfire and trip your check engine light. With your engine off, remove...

How to Set the Gap in your E3 Spark Plugs

Because every auto engine has its own quirks, setting the gap in your spark plugs can mean the difference between optimal performance and engine misfires.

The primary components of a spark plug are the tip, the insulation and the electrode....

How to Clean the E3 Spark Plugs in your Lawn Mower

Now that spring has sprung, it’s time to clean or replace your lawn mower spark plugs. Across the country, lawnmowers are emerging from garages and garden sheds after months of being stored away. Just like a car that’s been sitting for a while, your lawn mower, whether it’s a riding mower or push mower, needs a yearly tune up too. To clean your spark plug you will need a  socket wrench, brake cleaner and a soft cloth.  First, locate the plug and then brush off the housing surrounding it. Remove the black plug wire by lifting the spark plug cap that covers the end of the plug. Use the socket wrench to unscrew the spark plug by turning it counterclockwise. Once removed, check the electrode tip and ceramic insulator for build up or wear. Spray the dirty lawn...
