Sparking occurs between spark plug firing tip and the ground electrode (aka spark plug gap), thus igniting the A/F mixture. An adequate amount of voltage must be supplied by the ignition system (ignition…

However, the spark plug temperature also needs to be high enough to prevent fouling. Fouling is the accumulation of foreign substance such as fuel, oil or carbon on the…
