Water around the outsides of the spark plug may keep the car from running due to poor spark plug wires, but the engine should still turn over.
Bad engine cushions can make the engine shake. bad spark plugs cause malfunction as the car starts running.
To turn the engine over to draw in some fuel and air into the cylinder and to make the spark plug spark to enable the engine to start running on its own.
If the check engine light is flashing with the engine running , that means a spark plug misfire has been detected
The engine is running rich and the excess fuel is seeping through the piston cylinder into the oil reservoir. Probably time for a good tune up: new spark plug(s) air and fuel filter chage, etc., maybe even a carburetor adjustment.
No. The spark plugs are responsible for igniting the fuel in the cylinders. If you start yanking them out, the engine is going to stop running. This is covered in the book Things That Dummies Do.
No , all it does it ground out to cause spark just like a spark plug
A diesel vehicles does not need to be running. A diesel ignition in a Diesel engine comes from compression and not spark.
Spark Plugs do not affect your alternator. As long as your engine is running then it should be charging unless your alternator is bad
check the ignition module, it's in or around the rotor
The fuel is cut off to the engine. With no fuel it stops running immediately.
Spark plugs are used to ignite the air / fuel mixture in the engine The ( 8 ) spark plugs ( in your navigator ) are needed for the engine to run properly For example : if the engine cranks but does not start the engine is either not getting fuel , SPARK , or air Another example is if an engine cylinder is " missing " so the engine is running rough the cause may be the SPARKPLUG , coil , not the correct air / fuel ratio etc.
If your check engine light stays on with your engine running , that indicates a malfunction with your emission control system has been detected . If your check engine light is flashing on and off with your engine running that indicates a spark plug ( or spark plugs ) are misfiring . Have your vehicle scanned for any trouble codes in order to diagnose and repair the malfunction
specially assembled thermocouple spark plugs are used to accurately determine spark plug temperatures during actual engine operation
A spark plug is used to ignite the fuel/air mixture inside the cylinder of an internal combustion engine. If the spark plug isn't working, the cylinder won't fire. In a multi-cylinder engine, this will result in rough running and loss of power. In a small, single cylinder engine, this will result in the inability to start the engine.
A good way of checking how your car is running is by checking the spark plugs, If the injectors on a petrol engine are clogged then the engine will be running extra lean. The spark plug may look like the secomnd example on this sit http://www.ngksparkplugs.com/tech_support/spark_plugs/faqs/faqread.asp
it varies from engine to engine. Most are around 10-15 ft lbs.
Bad Spark plug and Bad Spark plug wires could make Engine Vibrate; If the Car is too old and has been running in country roads or farms then better check the engine mount bushes.
Depending on what you mean running?? If it is the engine that stops running then it could be something electrical like alternator not charging battery, mechanical malfuction like broken timming belt or water pump, no oil in engine, overheating, extremely worn spark plugs, or catastrophic engine damage.
The best way to determine why the engine will not stay running is to inspect the spark plug after the engine dies. There are two most likely reasons. In the first example, the engine will most likely just sputter and die. In the second, the engine will generally blow black smoke when it sputters before dying. (1) The spark plug greyish is dry: It is likely that the fuel filter is too clogged to allow flow of enough fuel to keep the engine running. If the fuel filter is not clogged, then the carburetor needs adjustment. (2) The spark plug is coated with black carbon or is wet (or both): The engine is running rich and is flooding. Likely causes are a dirty/faulty spark plug; a dirty/clogged air filter; or the carburetor is set too rich.
The engine needs fuel, compression and spark to run. You are missing at least one of those.
A 'spark ignition ' engine is your regular gasoline engine as opposed to a diesel, which is a 'compression ignition' engine
Maybe it's running too rich.check the gear oil to see if it's clear or discolour.if it's discolour the seals in the gear section of the engine is bad and the gear oil will enter the piston chamber and it will foul the spark plug. this will kill the engine when you come to a idle or you're not using the correct spark plug
the spark plug provides the spark necessary to ignite the fuel and air in the engine, which allows your engine to run. without spark plugs, your engine wouldn't start.
