Grzegorz is AMAZING! Another mechanic from YourMechanic had mis-diagnosed and incorrectly installed a part on the wrong portion of my car, but Grzegorz bent over backwards to diagnose and fix the issue. Even though we had to go through a few iterations to get the right repair (since the previous mechanic had left without any details about what he had done), Grzegorz was always able to come to my neighborhood at a time convenient for me to take a look at the car. He's a clear communicator - punctual, highly skilled - and always keeps you in the loop with his schedule, plans, and what's wrong with your car. He even went above and beyond and took my car for a smog check just to be absolutely sure that my car had been 100% fixed. Definitely recommend working with Grzegorz if possible.

All about Ignition Coil Replacement

Ignition coils transform low voltage electrical power 12 volts D.C. to high voltage current 50,000 volts D.C. or higher. The spark generated by the ignition coil ignites the fuel and air mixture in the engine that enables the car to start and run smoothly. If an ignition coil is not working properly, no spark will ignite the air fuel mixture, causing a misfire. A bad ignition coil can severely damage the engine or catalytic converter. If your car is equipped with “coil over plugs,” then it is recommended that you replace the spark plugs. If your car uses a single coil for the ignition system, it is not necessary to change the spark plugs.
