VIDEO: How Does A Vehicle A/C System Work?

When you get in your car on a sweltering summer day, there’s nothing better than cranking up the A/C and basking in a blast of cool, dry air coming through the vents.

The process of cooling the inside of a vehicle is the same process that’s used to cool your home, and they both include the same basic elements: a compressor, a condenser, an evaporator, and a system of hoses or tubes. 

In both situations, the A/C system isn’t producing fresh cold air. Instead, the system is taking existing hot air, removing the heat and moisture, and recirculating it as cold air.

What Are Direct Ignition Coils?

The stick coil eliminates ignition wires and utilizes wasted space by fitting neatly into the spark plug bore.

Ignition coils transform battery voltage into the higher voltage needed to jump the spark plug gap and efficiently ignite the air-fuel mixture in an engine.

Direct ignition coils are by far the most common type of ignition coil found in modern direct ignition systems, and they’ve been adopted by most of the major automakers. In this design, the coil mounts directly on top of the spark plug, eliminating the need for an ignition wire.
