What are Spark Plugs?
of a car's spark plug is to deliver an electric current from the ignition
system to the combustion chamber to ignite the compressed mixture of fuel
and air by an electric spark, while containing combustion pressure within
the engine. The resulting combustion is what ultimately powers the car.
The plugs are little devices inside the cylinder that have a a metal threaded
shell, electrically isolated from a central electrode by a porcelain insulator.
The spark plug's metal shell is screwed into the engine's cylinder head
and is therefore electrically grounded. The central electrode that protrudes
through the porcelain insulator into the combustion chamber, forming one
or more spark gaps between the inner end of the central electrode.
It is recommended
that you change your spark plugs every 50,000 kilometres. The constant
sparking of the electrodes causes tiny pieces of the metal to be burned
off. Over a period of time, the gap between the metal tips gets too big
for the spark to jump. Long-life spark plugs can last for for longer than
100,000 kilometres however you might find it extremely difficult, or even
impossible, to remove them when the time comes. Also changing the spark
plugs more regularly provides an opportunity to inspect them for signs
of other engine problems. For example a blackened spark plug may be a
sign your engine is running too rich.
that are in poor condition may lead to your engine misfiring and to run
poorly. Engine performance will suffer, fuel efficiency will decrease,
and emissions will dramatically increase. Your car may also be difficult
