Though, we're gonna talk not about the engine, but about the ignition system – the place where all of the internal combustion engine's components come together. The system is like a miniature power station. It provides electricity to create an electric spark, which then ignites the air-fuel mixture in the cylinder’s combustion chamber. That process makes the engine generate power, and your vehicle starts moving.

To reach the above-mentioned result, the ignition system has to operate in a perfect harmony with the rest of the engine. That is why, its goal is not just to ignite the fuel but do that at the exact time so that the expanding gases accomplish the maximum amount of work. But if the mechanism fires at an inappropriate time, power will diminish, while gas consumption and emissions will increase.

To function in unison with the engine, all components of the ignition system, including the distributor, ignition coil, rotor, plug wires and spark plugs, must perform their duties in the right way. Each of those is crucial to operation of the ignition system, but to completely understand how it works, some basic theory is required. The main principle behind the ignition mechanism has not changed since it was created around hundred years ago. The only thing that has gone through some changes is the method by which the spark is generated and the way it is transported to the cylinder.

The traditional ignition system (aka the distributor- or point-type) starts its operation with the ignition coil, which turns the relatively low power produced by the battery into a strong spark able to ignite the F/A mixture. What we consider to be the coil is in fact a combination of two 'windings' or coils of wire, the primary and the secondary. While the primary winding carries the low voltage electricity from the battery, the secondary coil increases the voltage and delivers it to the distributor via a well-insulated spark wire.

The electronic ignition system is similar to the traditional one. The only difference lies in the distributor. This type has an electronic control module that allows for improved mileage and reduced vehicle emissions. Do you wanna know its secret? Things are simple! The electrical ignition system creates a much stronger spark as its primary circuit operates on full battery voltage. And the greater spark is provided, the less fuel is required with each stroke. The last type to be mentioned is the distributorless or direct ignition system.

The question of whether to buy parts from an automotive dealer vs. ones from aftermarket manufacturers is as age-old as the automobile itself.Below, we'll take a look at things worth considering to help you make a better choice if you're facing that same question. Automobile manufacturers and dealerships always advertise the fact that their parts are "genuine" because they were made by the exact same production facility that made the parts installed on the assembly line.
