When Henry Ford invented the assembly line it was a game-changing idea. But did you know he got the idea after touring a slaughterhouse and seeing how they had this assembly line like production? Good thing Mr. Ford visited that slaughterhouse or else cars would probably take a lot longer to make. Today the part of the Ford vehicle we are going to focus on is the Ford ignition coil.

The Ford ignition coil is part of the Ford ignition system. The Ford ignition system is a system for igniting a fuel-air mixture in internal combustion engines like the gas powered ones in cars. The Ford ignition system has to work in perfect concert with the rest of the engine. This is because its goal is to ignite fuel at exactly the right time so that the expanding gases can do the maximum amount of work. If the Ford ignition system were to fire at the wrong time, power will fail and gas consumption and emissions can increase. When the fuel/air mixture in the cylinder burns, the temperature rises and the fuel is converted to exhaust gas. This transformation causes the pressure in the cylinder to increase dramatically and forces the piston down.

The Ford ignition coil is an induction coil that transforms the battery’s low voltage to the thousands of volts needed to create an electric spark in the spark plugs to ignite the fuel. Some of the Ford ignition coils have an internal resistor while others rely on a resistor wire or an external resistor to limit the current flowing into the coil from the cars 12-volt supply. Before, every ignition coil system required mechanical contact breaker points and a capacitor. But modern electronic ignition systems use a power transistor to provide pulses to the ignition coil.

In the modern electronically controlled ignition systems much smaller Ford ignition coils are used with one coil for each spark plug or one coil serving two spark plugs. With the larger Ford ignition coil there are about 40kV of voltage put out. These Ford ignition coils can be remotely mounted or can be placed on top of the spark plug, such as with the direct ignition system. Where one Ford ignition coil serves two spark plugs, in two cylinders, the ignition coil generates two sparks per cycle for both cylinders. If the Ford ignition coil is applied individually applied per cylinder, they can all be in a single molded block with multiple high-tension terminals and this is called a coil-pack.

So as you can see the Ford ignition coil is a very important part of your Ford ignition system. If it is not working then your Ford ignition system can misfire, get damaged and consume a lot more gas. So make sure that you get the proper Ford replacement ignition coil. Whether voltage is applied via one coil serving two spark plugs or using a coil-pack we have all the Ford replacement ignition coils that you need. So be sure to contact us!
