Spark plug condition has direct effect on the performance of car engine. This part is small and simple but used on harsh environment and have greater effect to the car when it is faulty.

The spark plug is said to be malfunction if it affects the performance of the car such as poor fuel consumption, hard to start the car and when the car idling is unstable.

Now a day some cars use iridium-type spark plug because of low wear and tear to achieved smaller diameter of the center electrode, the smaller diameter will make the center electrode to discharge the sparks easily because the electric potential is concentrated and will result to generation of strong spark. The melting point is much higher that the platinum type spark plug.
