A spark plug is a necessary part of a combustion engine, offering a spark that makes your car move. More complicated than that, a spark plug has a great role in your car’s function.
What a Spark Plug Is
Depending on the size of your engine, you may have one spark plug or many. These plugs are electrodes that are insulated with a glass covering. Small pieces of metal at the base and the top of the spark plug that capture the spark and to send electricity from one point to another. The metal “j” part is where the spark will be.

A Spark That Ignite Your Engine
When a vehicle is turned on, the spark plug is fired, causing a spark in the combustion engine. This spark then ignites and combusts the fuel in your vehicle’s gas tank. As a result, the vehicle is able to create pressure in the car’s engine which moves the engine pistons up and down. There needs to be some free space around the plug to have air flow, which will help produce the spark.
The spark plug may be small, but important part of a car. When a spark plug can not ignite, a car will not move.
