The ignition coil takes power from a car’s generator and transfers it to spark plugs, which ignites the fuel. Without a working ignition coil, a car cannot start properly.

In order to keep your car safe and running optimally, regular car maintenance is a necessity. Without it your safety, and the safety of anyone else who is regularly in your vehicle such as loved ones and friends, will be put in jeopardy. While some problems are very obvious, others are harder to notice if you do not have an expert knowledge of cars and their complex parts. To learn more about your ignition coil and how to tell if it may be causing problems and need maintenance or replacement, read on.  


What Is An Ignition Coil?

 

The ignition coil is an incredibly important part of any automobile. The ignition coil takes power from a car’s generator and transfers it to spark plugs, which ignites the fuel. Without a working ignition coil, a car cannot start properly. They make the vehicle start and are a key part of the entire ignition process. However, a dysfunctional ignition coil can also cause a wide range of problems, that are both more and less noticeable. Routine car maintenance will help you keep on top of your ignition coil and all the other parts of your car before they can cause expensive and potentially damaging long term problems.

 

What Are Some Of The Signs Of A Dysfunctional Ignition Coil?

 

A dysfunctional ignition coil can cause a wide range of problems in a car. These include obvious and dangerous problems and smaller more subtle problems which build over time. As an ignition coil is integral to the process of a vehicle starting up, a damaged one will cause issues whenever the car is turned on. If your car has trouble starting up or will not start, a bad ignition coil could be to blame. If your car experiences regular and repeated back firings, it is definitely time to get that ignition coil looked at. If you notice any of these things it is time for car maintenance. A bad ignition coil can also negatively impact your car’s gas mileage without you ever noticing. If your car has become less gas efficient over time, a bad ignition coil may be to blame.
