A Spark Plug is a small engine part with a big job. Without spark plugs, the cars ignition would not work and the car will not be capable of starting. The spark plug is responsible for carrying electricity from the ignition system to the combustion chamber of the engine. This small part ignites a cylinder head filled with a mixture of air and fuel. The spark plug ignites the mixture by creating a small electrical spark. The spark plug is screwed into the engines cylinder head.
Spark plugs are made up of an electrode, an insulator, a metal casing, and a connector. The spark plugs are wired to the distributor cap. There are two types of spark plugs, hot and cold. Hot plugs are constructed with a ceramic insert that has a smaller contact area with the metal part of the spark plug there by reducing the heat that ceramic transfers away from the plug. Cold plugs have a higher contact area with the ceramic and as such run cooler.
