Введение

Most people do not think twice about their spark plugs, yet these small parts play an incredibly important role in how your vehicle functions. Spark plugs are responsible for delivering electricity from your ignition to the engine. Without properly working spark plugs, your vehicle more than likely would not be able to run at all.  If your car is struggling to start when you turn the key in the ignition, or your check engine light appears on the dashboard, it may be time for a replacement.

This guide will explain how to change spark plugs in your 2009 - 2014 Acura TSX (CU2). It is also recommended to change plugs every 30,000 miles.
