We feel our clients should be in the know as well, so here are a few key terms to learn when dealing with ignition system issues:

  • Distributer Cap: Cover for the area which houses the rotor and brings together different spark plug wires
  • High Voltage Coil Lead: The lead wire which connects the ignition to the distributer
  • Ignition Signal Sensor: Electronic sensor which handles to timing from the vehicles computer
  • Compression Chamber: Encases the piston, fuel and spark plugs.
  • Vacuum Advance: Timing point which helps to determine the speed of the spark plug ignition
  • Alternator: Generates the electric current from the battery which lights the spark plugs
