Spark plugs ignite the fuel mixture in your car’s engine, which is what makes it move. It receives a spark from the electronic ignition in modern cars or the distributor cap and rotor in older automobiles, sitting on top of the cylinder head.
After about 30,000 miles, conventional spark plugs will wear out, which might result in stalling, misfiring, and other engine problems. Higher-cost platinum-tipped spark plugs may not need to be replaced as frequently. At the same time, it’s a good idea to change your oxygen sensor, spark plug wires, PCV valve, and fuel filter.

The Cadillac ATS is a compact luxury vehicle that continues to compete with the finest from Europe and Japan. Standard models come equipped with a 272-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four linked to an eight-speed automatic rear axle, while top levels include an all-wheel-drive or a three-cylinder engine. A 335-hp V-6 is standard, as well as all-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission. For infotainment, there’s an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto; 4G LTE Wi-Fi is included by default.
The 2019 Cadillac ATS is a poor luxury small car. Its performance chops are decent, but it has a below-average predicted reliability rating and an underwhelming interior quality, as well as limited seating and storage space.
