Suzuki Swift 2022 Engine in Pakistan
The Engine k12M is designed for Iridium Plugs, and globally these are factory-fitted plugs, but in Pakistan, they have made a few modifications to Swift. Hence Suzuki Pakistan saved up the Cost by changing the plugs too.
Normally Nickel plugs are used on older vehicles or motorbikes as they are not very efficient. It was strange to observe that even the top variant, Suzuki Pakistan provided a nickel plug in Swift 2022.
5 Benefits Of Changing Spark Plugs from nickel to iridium
1. Increased Combustion
They are responsible for the combustion of the air-fuel mixture inside the combustion chamber. Nickel Plugs are efficient in this case, and primarily vehicles use Iridium Plugs with Fuel Injection Technology. This will increase the power and give your better fuel economy of your Suzuki Swift.
2. Fuel Efficiency
Old or nickel sparkplugs can cause misfires, due to which you can face increased fuel usage. Iridium plugs are considered to be 30% extra efficient in relation to nickel plugs, and they are long-lasting too.
3. Smooth Start-Up Performance
Once you change your sparkplugs, you will notice a performance boost in acceleration and engine idle.
5. Improved Horsepower
As stated earlier, due to optimum condition, your engine will run more smoothly which will provide more horsepower and positive engine feedback. So, its highly recommended to use Iridium Spark Plugs over Nickel Ones.
