HOW DOES SPARK PLUG WORK IN ENGINES – PIT BOX


Today we want to talk about the most important element of the engine, this element is the generator of the internal combustion, stay with us to know more We want to talk about the SPARK PLUG The SPARK PLUG was used for the first time on a GAS engine in the year 1860 The SPARK PLUG consists of On this specific point the SPARK occurs When the mixture between air and fuel is ready After the piston press them upwards to the combustion chamber The SPARK happens sequentially and this generates combustion and this pushes the piston downwards and this is how we get of the engine Number of the SPARK PLUGS in the engine is directly related to the number of cylinders So, if we have 4 cylinders Certainly we have 4 SPARK PLUGS If we have 6 cylinders then it is 6 SPARK PLUGS If it is 8 cylinders, then it is 8 SPARK PLUGS Some engines they use 2 SPARK PLUGS per cylinder Means if you have 4 cylinders then we get 8 SPARK PLUGS CHRYSLER was the most user of this system on the HEMI engines NISSAN also used to include this system on its engines DIESEL engines they don’t have SPARK PLUGS WHY?!! Because DIESEL engine depends on self combustion, what is self combustion? Self combustion happens when the mixture between air and diesel together when they reach to a certain level of compression The ignition will be generated by itself because of this compressed mixture without the assistant of the SPARK PLUG Therefor SPARK PLUG is essential in the benzine engine for ignition in order to produce and the rotation of the engine This is why the SPARK PLUG is the most important element to produce ignition in benzine engines For this reason, we should always take care of SPARK PLUGS in our engine Because inefficient SPARK PLUG will harmfully effect the engine For example: reduce engine’s efficiency will harm some engine’s elements such as: CYLINDER PISTON VALVES All these components have direct relation with SPARK PLUGS It is well recommended to change the SPARK PLUGS every This is not standard Also depends on the brand or the type of the SPARK PLUG which you use! Because it varies from brand to brand and from type to type Also HP of the engine plays a role in its duration to be changed If the HP is high, then we need to change it before 50,000 km What is the function of the SPARK PLUG in the engine? SPARK PLUG’S function in the engine is an element that transfer the high voltage into the combustion chamber in order to assure the ignition for the ready mix which is already compressed Once the explosion occurs this produces rotation which comes from the pistons which will be transferred to the transmission and generates the motion of the car This is our episode of SPARK PLUGS Thank you for watching it
