What is an ignition coil and how does it work?

An ignition coil transforms ignition voltage (12 volts) to the very high voltage pulses (20,000 volts or more) that fire the spark plugs. The number of ignition coils varies depending on car model and year of production. Older cars will have one coil covering all engine cylinders while newer cars may have a coil-on-plug type arrangement — that is every cylinder will have its own dedicated ignition coil.

Ignition Coils

When to consider replacing an ignition coil:

  • Hard starting or no start. Ignition coils are subject to heat damage and electrical overload, both of which can cause partial or total failure. If the coil is faulty, you may have difficulty starting your car or it may not start at all.
  • Misfiring, loss of power, poor acceleration. Once the car is running, a bad ignition coil can cause poor operation of the engine. Should you have misfiring or loss of power, faulty ignition coils would be among the list of causes a mechanic would investigate. The Check Engine Light will often come on with a trouble code(s) indicating which cylinders are involved.

How do mechanics replace the ignition coil?

  • The ignition is checked to assure it is in the “off” position.
  • For single coils that supply all cylinders, the coil is disconnected from either a bracket located in the engine compartment or, in some cases, is removed from within the distributor. The replacement coil is secured and all electrical connections reattached. If the distributor was removed for any reason, the timing is adjusted as required.
  • For individual coil-on-plug applications, the coil is detached from the top of the individual spark plug and replaced.
  • Once the coil is securely in place, all electrical connections are reattached, and timing adjusted as needed, the car is road tested to ensure normal operation.

Is it safe to drive with an ignition coil problem?

Yes. A malfunctioning ignition coil will cause loss of power and lower fuel efficiency but that will not present an immediate safety issue. If the coil malfunction is causing misfiring, this will allow unburned fuel to enter and permanently damage the catalytic converter from overheating.

When replacing an ignition coil keep in mind:

  • Ignition coil failure can be caused by faulty spark plugs or wires. The mechanic will inspect and may recommend replacement of those components.
  • In a coil-on-plug ignition system, if only one coil fails, you need only replace the faulty coil. Remaining functioning coils can be left in place.
  • In systems with the coil located in the distributor, it may be more cost-effective to replace the entire distributor rather than remove and replace just the coil.

BMW 330Ci - Ignition Coil Replacement - San Francisco, California
For the better part of a month, I’d been panicking over my 2002 BMW 330ci, which had basically lost all power, so it was just sitting in my garage. Towing it to a shop for diagnostic testing was an option, but then I’d be stuck in the event projected repair costs exceeded the car’s worth (or even half of its worth). Being stuck sucks, so I decided on exercising another option. After reading a bunch of reviews and doing some research on Your Mechanic and their team of mechanics, I decided on giving them a try. I am so glad that I did. What an outfit! Great concept, great execution ... The people in the office are wonderful at keeping you informed, answering questions, from beginning to end. Their online presence and transparency dismisses any weirdness customers may feel about the whole inviting strangers over thing, too. And Your Mechanic delivers, by connecting top-tier mechanics with people who need their help. That’s exactly what Your Mechanic did for me, by introducing me to Chris M. He came to my rescue. What a pleasant polite young gentleman, Chris is. And Boy oh boy!, does he know his stuff! With patient professional confidence and calm, Chris ably diagnosed my car’s problems, tested the hypothesis, and retested too. The problems weren’t easy to find or common whatsoever. Thanks to diligence and expertise, however, Chris M. identified the issues. It wasn’t piston rings or the catalytic converter, as I’d feared, but a faulty engine coil. Chris explained the issue, actually showed me what was going on in the engine compartment, provided me with a detailed quote that I knew was fair and reasonable (talk about a mind Blow!), and then he even offered to come back and do the work, if I wanted. Heck Yes! Chris came back the very same day to render the fixes, all from inside of my garage. No tow trucks, no queue of customers waiting, no worries about surprisingly huge repair bills, and no concern about strangers coming over, or anxiety about non-OEM parts. I have a brand new engine coil, new spark plugs, a clean gas line, clean oil – and a renewed confidence in my automobile’s reliability. Presto! My car runs like a charm. Chris M. earned my confidence, my trust, and my respect – and that’s an amazing feat. Having a qualified, knowledgeable professional come to my home, diagnose my car’s troubles, and even render repairs on site, using manufacturer-recommended parts, sounds like a luxury I couldn’t afford. Turns out I was wrong. No doubt, from here on out, I will be recommending Chris M. and Your Mechanic to anyone and everyone.
