What does an ignition coil pack do?

An ignition coil is a transformer that increases the 12v supply voltage to in excess of 50,000v to provide the spark plug with maximum power to produce an electrical arc from its electrode to the plugs earth.

How does an ignition coil pack work and what are the components?

The number of ignition coils on a vehicle is specific to the manufacturer's design. Some vehicles have one coil pack per cylinder, some have ignition coils that control two and some have one coil pack that covers all the cylinders.

However configured though, the principal is the same. There will be a feed wire to the ignition coil and a signal wire from the ECU for each cylinder. When the engine ECU deems the exact time to detonate the fuel/air mix in the cylinder, it will send a signal down the wire to the coil pack controlling that cylinder and put the circuit live.

The ignition coil will increase the 12v feed to the required voltage and send it either directly to the spark plug or down a HT lead to the plug.

How do you know when there is something wrong with an ignition coil pack?

The main symptoms that can occur when there is a faulty ignition coil are;

  • When starting the car is problematic.
  • When the engine cuts out after starting.
  • When the engine does not run smoothly (the engine misfires).
  • When the car vibrates excessively.
  • When the 'Check Engine' light on the car's dashboard is on.

When should you consider replacing a faulty ignition coil pack?

Ignition coils are critical to the smooth running of an engine. Without them, the engine will simply not work as it should, if at all. Therefore as soon as you are advised that the ignition coil(s) need changing, you should do so. Running an engine with a faulty ignition coil can also cause additional wear and tear on other items.

Ideally, even if there are individual ignition coils per cylinder, they are replaced as a set and not individually. On engines where there is one coil pack covering all the cylinders, there is no option in this.

How can I extend the life of my ignition coil pack?

There is little you can do to prevent issues arising with coil packs.

What happens during an ignition coil pack replacement?

  • Mechanic will read the ECU for possible fault codes related to the ignition system.
  • Mechanic will inspect the ignition system and spark plugs.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the ignition coil pack(s)
  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will check if the ignition system works correctly again and will test drive the car.
