They ignite the air/fuel mixture. Without them, your car won't run. Look up the Otto cycle for a basic understanding of how your engine works. Diesel engines are similar, except they don't use spark plugs to initiate combustion.

Re: Spark plugs?

they are the "spark" that makes the fuel burn. You just need OEM ones no need for fancy overpriced ones that dont do anything
