The ignition coil is fundamental to the internal-combustion process.


When you’re recommending replacement ignition coils, what should you look for?

Well, keep in mind that their location on top of the cylinder head exposes ignition coils to high heat, moisture, oil and rapid temperature changes, and the coil windings can fail due to the large flow of amperage. So you really need to recommend an ignition coil with a robust design that can withstand these operating conditions.

It goes without saying that you want to recommend a coil that’s designed to meet or exceed original-equipment, or OE, specifications, and you’re going to want something with excellent mechanical stability and corrosion protection. 

Good cold-start performance, high die-electric strength and high-quality insulation materials are a few of the other features and characteristics to look for in an ignition coil.
