: what are signs of fouled mechanic said that i should change the plugs every month or so and i havent in 3 months so i was curious if i should...

Crap,sorry but your mechanic is wrong to say you should change your plugs every month.If an engine is running as it should and not running rich you should'nt have to change your plugs for at least 20000-30000 miles!.The signs of fouled plugs are carbon,black sooty type deposits on the tips of your plugs or if the engine is burning oil they will be black and oily to the touch(worst case scenario).So go back to your mechanic and tell him to check the you fuel/air mixture,and the compression on all cylinders if these are ok then don't worry about your plugs.
