Ignition System

The basic components in the ignition system are a storage battery, an induction coil, a device to produce timed high-voltage discharges from the induction coil, a distributor, and a set of spark plugs.

What are the parts of an ignition?

The following are common ignition system components:

  • Battery
  • Distributor Cap and Rotor
  • Ignition Coil/ Coil Packs/Coil- On-Plug (COP)
  • Spark Plug Wires
  • Spark Plugs
  • Ignition Module
  • Powertrain Control Module (PCM)
  • Crankshaft and Camshaft Sensors

An ignition issue can be caused by a faulty or failing ignition coil, spark plug, or spark plug wire set. These critical components of your ignition system keep your engine running smoothly. … Ignition coils and wire sets are fairly straightforward to replace.
