Ignition System Kits
The Ignition System Kits include the components needed to generate the spark that ignites the air-fuel mixture at the right time to achieve optimal efficiency. This process takes place in the engine's combustion chamber. The important components of the ignition system include the ignition coil and spark plugs. The ignition coil multiplies the voltage it receives from the battery and sends it to the spark plugs which generate the spark to ignite the fuel.
There are three kinds of ignition systems: mechanical, electronic and distributorless. In mechanical ignition systems, a key is inserted into the ignition switch which transmits the battery voltage to a starter to fire the engine initially. When the key is released, the battery current is redirected to the ignition coil. The multiplied current from the ignition coil now flows to the distributor through its contact points. The distributor is driven by the engine camshaft and hence its speed is directly proportional to the engine speed. As the distributor rotates, the ignition coil is grounded at specific intervals depending on the engine's speed. The distributor stores this energy for a short time before passing it to the spark plugs at particular time intervals.
Electronic ignition systems consist of electronic timing devices in place of ignition points and are controlled by an electronic control module. Modern automobiles have distributorless ignition systems that have separate ignition coils for each spark plug. They rely on the Engine Control Unit (ECU) instead of a distributor. A bad ignition system will cause an engine misfire as it fails to generate the spark at the right time. Other indications include a poor acceleration and a reduced engine efficiency. If you find any of the aforementioned symptoms, you should consider inspecting the ignition system components and replace them, if required.
