E3 Replacement Plugs Provide A Smooth Burn

Spark Plugs are necessary to produce a smooth burn. Your car or truck has and needs a battery, a distributor and spark plugs. The battery stores the electrical energy needed to start the engine. Stored energy travels from the source to the coil, which amplifies the voltage to produce a spark in the spark plugs. Each spark plug is receiving current from an ignition coil or magneto. As the voltage begins to rise, electrical impulses travel from the coil through ignition wires. An ignition coil produces voltage in excess of 20,000 volts from a lower voltage battery. To create the spark needed for combustion, an electrical spark emits across a small gap.

The electrical voltage needed varies with different spark plugs. Each piston has its own cylinder and spark plug. The spark ignites the aerosol gasoline mixture. The voltage required depends upon spark plug gap and engine compression. The number of times a spark occurs per minute is very high. For example, a two-stroke engine fires every revolution. A two-stroke running at 4,000 rpm requires 4,000 sparks per minute. The number of sparks required per minute must be multiplied by the number of cylinders. To run right, the spark must occur at the right piston height in the cylinder.

In light of the high voltage, heat, rate of discharge and precise degree of timing, your spark plugs and ignition wires never get to rest when the engine is running. In addition, your spark plugs are designed to remove excess heat for the engine every cycle the engine is running. Because the spark plug works as a heat exchanger, a plug's heat range is presented as its ability to dissipate excess heat from the plug's tip. The temperature must be cool enough to avoid unwanted combustion of the fuel mixture, but hot enough to deter carbon fouling. Black carbon deposits may also mean a short to ground. Other causes of plug fouling can include too rich of air-fuel mixture or damaged valve guides.

When it is time to replace the plugs in your vehicle, choose E3 car or truck spark plugs for your ride. E3 Spark Plugs were born to burn.
