PUT THE WRONG SPARK PLUGS

1999 Acura Integra • 4 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 156,000 miles

1999 Acura Integra mileage: 156,000. I had a mechanic who put the wrong spark plugs in my car. Now I am losing compression in the cylinders. Could you please tell me how the spark plug works and why it caused a carbon build up which led to a loss in compression in my engine?

Putting the wrong spark plugs in your car would not cause a compression loss in the cylinders. They would also not cause a carbon build-up in the cylinders. Putting the correct spark plugs in your engine should correct any problems you are having.
