Usually some carbon deposits are left clinging to the combustion chamber surfaces, these deposits are red hot and ignite fuel/air mixture after the ignition is turned off. This could be caused by letting the vehicle idle excessivly long or only using it for short low speed trips. some times it may be caused by too rich of a fuel/air mixture. If it is carburated, if the idle is too fast it will cause it to diesel.

The engine causes thrust, it moves the aircraft.

Your question is sort of backwards, perhaps you meant what causes engine failure? Engine failure causes...the engine to fail. If someone told me their engine failed I would take it to mean that it stopped running, or wouldn't start.

Excessive revving of an engine causes overpressure in the crankcase. It causes unhealthy expansion in the pistons and the valves.
