No Mazda engine would be able to start without spark plugs. They're what's responsible for initiating the combustion process -- the process of burning fuel and oxygen for power. Turn the key in its ignition lock cylinder to see said process in action. First, the ignition switch triggers. Then, the battery, starter motor, starter solenoid, and ignition coil conduct electricity to the plugs' leads. Then, the air and gas in the engine ignite. Power's produced; the pistons and crankshaft get moving, and finally, the many other parts that drive your favorite car or SUV get going.
A spark plug can go bad owing to use and age, though. When that happens, you'll notice a few signs. The plug's leads may corrode or widen excessively, electrical conductivity may worsen, and the engine may misfire or fail. If a spark plug breaks, however, it's a worse scenario: usually, severe engine cylinder damage results.
You're in luck: those manufactured these days can last for millions of ignitions, up to 100,000 miles. They just need to be replaced consistently -- generally, before reaching their mileage limits. The question then becomes "which ones does my Mazda need?" That depends on the model you drive. Choose genuine OEM either way; they'll work best. Mazda designs them to fit your ride specifically, after all, and that kind of fitment guarantee is one that you may not necessarily get from off-brands.
