Car Ignition inspection, repair & replacement

The ignition system of a vehicle is responsible for initiating the engine and supplying the necessary electrical energy to maintain its operation. It starts with a spark that helps ignite the air-fuel mixture in the engine cylinders.

When the ignition is turned, the battery supplies the necessary power to the coil which then helps fire the spark. The spark plugs are crucial in the ignition process as it creates the spark that ignites the fuel mixture. Petrol cars use spark plugs while diesel engines need glow plugs.

The overall condition of the ignition system is generally inspected during the annual service but due to the strain on its components every time an engine starts, it is likely for the parts to suffer damage from wear and tear over time.

Ignition services we offer

Starter Motor repair

During a starter motor repair, the component that is responsible for turning over the engine and starting the combustion process will be inspected and repaired or replaced as needed.

Ignition Coil replacement

Ignition coil is a component in a vehicle's ignition system that is responsible for generating the voltage needed to create the spark that ignites the fuel in the engine. During the replacement, the faulty or damaged coil is removed and installed with a new one.

Spark Plug change

In petrol engines, spark plugs ignite the air-fuel mixture in the cylinders to start the process of combustion. During spark plug change, typically, all the spark plugs are checked for issues such as misfiring and replaced with new ones.

Glow Plugs replacement

A glow plug replacement involves the removal and replacement of the heating element that helps ignite the fuel, especially during cold weather conditions.
