When your vehicle is properly tuned, the ignition system, fuel system, emission system and computer system all work together in perfect harmony. This results in peak combustion chamber efficiency, improving performance, saving you money at the gas pump and making sure your car is emitting a minimal amount of pollutants.
The ignition system is responsible for producing and transferring the spark energy to the combustion chamber at the correct time.
Spark plugs are installed in the cylinder head and deliver spark current to the combustion chamber.
Symptoms of malfunctioning sparkplugs include:
Produce high voltage spark energy sufficient to properly ignite the air/fuel mixture inside the combustion chamber. The On-Board computer or ignition module typically controls ignition coils.
Symptoms of malfunctioning ignition coils include:
The distributor cap is the connection point for all sparkplug wires. Distributor type ignitions systems (DI) also have a distributor rotor. The rotor spins inside the cap distributing the spark current to each sparkplug wire. Electronic Ignition (EI) systems do not have distributors, but instead have multiple ignition coils.
Symptoms of a malfunctioning distributor:
Provides a conductive path for the spark current from the distributor cap or coil to the spark plugs. Contain the spark energy.
Symptoms of malfunctioning ignition wires include:
