Delphi Product & Service Solutions has announced the
addition of 12 new ignition coils to its engine management product
portfolio, covering more than 12.8 million vehicles including BMW,
Chrysler, Hyundai, Ford, Nissan, Infiniti, Honda and Jaguar applications
from 1990 to 2013. Part numbers include: GN10379, GN10389, GN10390,
GN10391, GN10456, GN10485, GN10494. GN10505, GN10538. GN10547, GN10560
Why Ignition Coils Fail
Ignition coils operate in a tough environment. Stresses created by
vibration, temperature changes and even the failure of spark plugs and
other components can cause ignition coil wiring to break or short out.
The insulation inside the ignition coil also can fail, causing energy to
Delphi offers three reasons to choose its ignition coil line for replacement:
1. Precision Manufacturing Processes
Delphi says it backs up its ignition coil design with intelligent
manufacturing. Delphi uses winding process techniques to control the
length of wire between adjacent windings. That’s important because more
length results in greater voltage differences, which can create more
pressure that could break down the insulation and wire coating,
according to the company.
2. Tested and Proven with the Delphi Difference
Built with the benefit of more than 100 years of Delphi’s OE heritage,
Delphi ignition coils are engineered to OE specifications. Delphi coils
are designed and endurance-tested to resist the common stresses that
cause failure, the company states.
3. Innovative Design and Materials
Delphi has analyzed the environment that ignition coils must withstand
and is combating failure issues with high-quality design and materials.
The company says it backs its ignition coil design with proven
materials, such as high-quality wires and wire coating that resists the
cracks, pin holes and imperfections that most often lead to failure
issues. Delphi also uses an epoxy vacuum technique to reduce air bubbles
in the epoxy, because having fewer air bubbles increases the epoxy’s
insulating quality and reduces the chances of energy punch-through
for specific part information. Inventory is available by part number starting now until early Q3 2014.
