Spark plugs are responsible for igniting the mixture of fuel and air in your engine. The process is called "spark ignition," and it starts with turning the key in the ignition lock cylinder. The ignition switch activates, and your car battery, plus other ignition parts like the starter motor, starter solenoid, and ignition coil, get to work. Together, they produce a small electric charge, which the plugs' leads capture. Combustion occurs in the engine, its pistons start to pump, and its crankshaft begins to turn.
No spark plug lasts forever, though. Sometimes, the leads can get rusty or widen, making them less able to conduct electric sparks. Also, if your engine's misfiring or failing, it's probably because your spark plugs are bad. Broken ones, however, are worse: they can badly damage the cylinders in your engine. If you're experiencing any of these issues, inspect your spark plugs to figure out what's happening, and change any that require it.
If you need new ones, those Mopar manufactures for your brand and model are the best choice. They're tough enough to last millions of ignitions, up to about 100,000 miles. In fact, these types are often called "extended-life" because of that. Copper spark plugs, for example, are great for normal, everyday driving, while platinum or iridium spark plugs, for another, will better withstand wear. Just don't let any exceed their recommended mileage limits.
