Gap is the distance between the electrode (the thing that sparks) and that metal hoop around it. If the gap is too much the air coming into the cylinder will prevent it from sparking and youll get a misfire.

So my car has no radiator fluid in it, and I've left three spark plugs out of it. Apparently my dad fired it up today to let someone listen to it, did he completely **** it up or is it alright? lol

...speechless.
Sorry but... :lmao

Agreed, but this thread makes me chuckle. OP I hope you can get this figured out but at this point I'd recommend you take it to a shop and let them fix it altogether.

Make sure the misfiring plug is gapped right and the compression isn't blowing the spark out.
So I guess, it runs in the family. :facepalm::facepalm:
Oh hell yeah lol my dad once took our expedition to the shop because it wouldn't start. Turns out the problem was that it had no fuel lol in no way is he dumb, but that definitely wasn't one of his prouder moments. Now you guys understand these geneotypical struggle I have to overcome haha
