Ignition and Glowplug System car parts - all important information about operating method, mounting, diagnostics and service life

Ignition system of a vehicle is a complex of devices and instruments which function is to provide generation of electric spark. It is the electric spark that generates ignition of the fuel-air mixture in the cylinders of the vehicle engine.

Types of the engine ignition systems
  • Breaker-triggered system. The breaker controls the accumulation and distribution of power between the cylinders of the engine.
  • Breakerless transistorized ignition system. Control over the accumulation and distribution of power between the cylinders is carried out by the interaction of a transistor switch with a contactless pulse sensor.
  • Microprocessor spark timing system. Control over the accumulation and distribution of energy is carried out by an electronic control unit.
Ignition system structure
  1. The battery and the car generator as a power source;
  2. Ignition switch;
  3. The device controlling power accumulation: the transistor switch, the breaker or the electronic timing controller;
  4. Ignition coil as an energy storage unit;
  5. Distributor (device routing energy to the cylinders), either the mechanical device or the electronic control unit;
  6. Coil wire;
  7. Spark plugs.
Exploitation

For the ignition system not to cause any problems, car owners should carry out regular inspections. Checking out mountings of units and parts, inspection of the surface of the ignition coil, wire, spark plugs are all mandatory requirements for each driver. Do not forget to check parts and surfaces for cracks, damages, signs of scorch, oil or fuel.

Ignition system failures
  • Improper adjustment, breakage of centrifugal and vacuum regulator of ignition timing.
  • Program failure of the electronic control unit.
  • Systematic spark failure in one or more cylinders.
  • No spark in one or more cylinders.
  • Greasing of spark plugs.
Signs of the ignition system failure
  • Unstable ignition of power-plant;
  • Unstable engine operation at idle speed;
  • Engine power loss;
  • The increase in fuel consumption.
Causes of the ignition system failures
  • Ignoring the rules, time limits or recommendations for operation.
  • Low quality fuel.
  • Low quality maintenance.
  • Low quality parts.
  • Mechanical defects.
  • Weather impact.
Repair and replacement of the ignition system

Repair works are the replacement of defective or worn out elements of the system. Usually replacement concerns spark plugs, coil wires, ignition coils, condensers, electronic switch, ignition switch or its contact block, distributor pickup and its components. Most manufacturers recommend to clean the spark plugs from combustion residue every 10000 km, and to replace them every 30000 km. replacement is carried out with cold engine and a special wrench. Disconnect the plug of high voltage wires from the spark plug, unscrew the old spark plugs, put the new ones in the cylinder head, attach the plug, and carefully check the reliability of the element’s planting. Professional diagnostics, repair of the ignition system and necessary replacements are better to be left to service stations. They will not only solve the problems fast and proficiently, but will provide recommendations to improve the operation of the vehicle.
