honda fit spark plugs

Asked by Nov 04, 2014 at 03:29 PM about the 2008 Honda Fit Sport

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Do spark plugs commonly go bad in 2008 Honda Fits? There was a loud 'pop' in mine
and then it sounded like the exhaust 'blew'. Pulled off the side of the road and had it
towed in because it sounded awful. Mechanic said the spark plugs were blown and that it
was a common problem. Can't find anyone else complaining about that.

If it has 80000 to 100000 thousand mile,s or better,than yes it needed them any way.


A spark plug was ejected on my honda fit 2007 this morning. Did yours unscrew or blew the threads? How is your car now?

Same problem on my 2008 Honda Fit with 133,000 miles on it. Stripped the threads right out. Looking at retapping the hole and installing inserts. Anyone else done this on the Honda?

My 2007 Honda Fit blew the #2 spark plug at around 135,000. It didn't totally strip the threads and although the dealership wouldn't warranty/guarantee the work, they were able to retap and install an insert that was still holding when the #1 plug blew out at 184,000 miles. There had been a sound like a horn blowing under the hood for some time before it blew out. This time, there was not enough thread to retap.
