The spark plug fires the gasoline mixture in the engine, allowing your automobile to move. It receives a spark from the electronic ignition in today’s cars or the distributor cap and rotor in older automobiles, which is mounted on top of your engine’s cylinder head.
Conventional spark plugs will ultimately wear down at around 30,000 miles to as much as 40,000 miles, causing stalling, starting difficulties, and engine misfires. Platinum-tipped spark plugs that are more expensive 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 XT6 is a relatively new vehicle, having been launched only two years ago. It has a beautiful exterior design and is one of the most attractive mid-size SUVs on the market. Its interior, on the other hand, isn’t particularly modern, and its V6 engine consumes a lot of fuel. A new 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder with 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque was added to the range in 2017 as a replacement for the previous 3.5L twin-turbo VVT W24 engine option in new trim to help address at least one of these concerns.
The new 3.0-liter V6 produces 300 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, with all trims getting a nine-speed automatic as standard equipment. In the face of the BMW X5 and Audi Q7, however, the XT6 has its work cut out for it. Can it compete against the big boys or is it just another niche filler?
The new Cadillac XT6 has an excellent appearance from the outside, with a beautiful interior to match. Vertical LED daytime running lights draw your attention to narrow LED headlights and a huge grille that is painted gloss black and includes unique mesh on the top Sport trim.
Standard equipment includes a sunroof, roof rails, and a large dual-exit exhaust tip. The basic version comes standard with 18-inch wheels, while the top trims have 20s and the Sport comes with 21-inch wheels. The creased bodywork alters the SUV’s appearance depending on the angle at which it is viewed, but no amount of design magic can hide its massive size or blocky shape.
