Ignition coils are responsible for delivering the vital spark that ignites the air-fuel mixture and keeps your machine’s engine running smoothly. When they falter, your engine’s performance suffers, delaying your operations or even bringing them to a halt.
Over time, ignition coils can wear out due to a variety of factors, including heat, vibration, electrical stress, and general wear and tear. When these coils begin to deteriorate, your equipment may exhibit symptoms like:
- Rough Idling
- Poor Fuel Efficiency
- Reduced Power
Ignoring these signs can have costly consequences, damaging other internal parts like your catalytic converter or your oxygen sensor. Regularly replacing worn coils will not only save you in future repairs, it will also optimize your machine’s performance and reliability. Ensuring that your engine is operating at its best with each spark.
So, when should you replace the ignition coils? If your machines are experiencing any of the symptoms above, it might be time to replace your coils. Otherwise, as a general guideline you should inspect and potentially replace your coils around every 60,000 to 100,000 miles or every 5 years.
