Caption: A car spark plug firing. The spark plug is the trigger that causes the gasoline to burn at a specific time in the car's internal combustion engine, providing the gas/air mixture the activation energy to start to burn. This is a critical component in the thermodynamic cycle of an internal combustion engine. A dirty or poorly adjusted spark plug will cause an engine to mis-fire, or fail to run.
