Understanding Your Vehicle’s Ignition System

The ignition system is crucial for starting your engine and maintaining its performance. It comprises several key components, including the ignition switch, spark plugs, ignition coil, distributor (in older models), and various sensors. These components work together to ignite the fuel-air mixture in the engine cylinders, creating the power needed to start and run your vehicle.

The ignition system uses spark plugs that require electricity to function. The source of this power is the ignition coil, which receives energy from the battery as well as input from the ignition switch. When you start your car, a message is sent to the Ignition Control Module (ICM).

The ICM causes the coil to generate a high-voltage spark. This spark passes through the electrode on the spark plug and into the ashtray, which serves as a makeshift combustion chamber. Here, it ignites the air/fuel mixture and starts the engine.

Any part of the ignition system may degrade with time and use. The most common problem is misfiring, caused by damaged spark plugs or an Ignition Control Module. Misfiring can reduce engine performance, lower fuel efficiency, and cause damage to the engine.
