    Ignition Coil Components

    Most newer vehicles are set up with a small ignition coil on each spark plug, with the signal for ignition coming from the engine computer. Older vehicles, before the late 90s, still used a distributor, coil and plug wires. Ignition coils are integral car components that resemble high-voltage transformers made up of two coils of wire. The first coil is called the primary coil, and the second one -- which remains wrapped around it -- is the secondary coil. Secondary automotive ignition coils usually have a lot more turns of wire in comparison to the primary ones.

    When you turn on the engine of your {make}, current flows from the battery via the primary winding of the car ignition coil components, where it gets a huge boost in voltage. On older vehicles, the current would then be disrupted with mechanical breaker points or electronic ignition, allowing pulses that could be delivered to the spark plugs. Though the coil looks like an electromagnet, it works as an inductor.

    Ignition coils must be in good condition for the vehicle to run properly. If your vehicle does not run smoothly, it could be a problem with the ignition coil or coil-on-plugs. Some of the most common symptoms of improperly functioning performance ignition coils include backfiring, engine misfiring, vehicle stalling and reduced fuel economy.

    Spark plugs are essential elements of all ignition coil components, and if they get worn out, it forces the ignition coils to operate at a greater output than normal. Even routine erosion can cause these plugs to malfunction. Today’s plugs can go 80-100,000 miles between changes, but that doesn’t mean they never need to be changed. Once you know the right ignition coil for your vehicle, you can easily purchase a new one from our wide selection.

    Simple, regular maintenance of your car ignition coils will enable you to save money in the long run. Make sure that normal erosion does not steadily widen the gap in the spark plug of your car. This might lead to increased current flow capable of overloading the primary transistor in your car's coils.
