The internal combustion engine needs air, fuel, compression and spark to run, and ignition components of your
vehicle are 1/3 of that equation. Older vehicles use a mechanical distributor, while post-1990s engines usually
use a coil-on-plug system with firing order dictated by the engine computer. Other ignition components we stock
include pickups, the previously mentioned transformer coil and connectors, condensers, trigger wheels and more.
For more modern, computer-reliant vehicles, we offer a range of ECUs and related parts.
The internal combustion engine needs air, fuel, compression and spark to run. Over the years, there have been
a few different systems to deliver spark. Older vehicles use a distributor driven by the camshaft to manage
spark delivery, with an ignition coil to provide voltage to the distributor. Prior to the mid-70s, most
vehicles used a mechanical breaker point system to interrupt spark, which was superseded by a transistorized
By the mid-90s, most vehicles had gone to electronic engine controls for fuel metering and spark, and many no
longer had a distributor and plug wires, instead going with a separate ignition coil for each cylinder.
Whether you need coil-on-plug setups or a traditional distributor, rotor, coil and plug wires -- we've got
components you need to get the job done!
