Ignition Coils are a Must
Have you ever wondered how the energy from your battery is transmitted to your engine? Well, let me tell you how that works. The juice that is being put forth by your battery is at low voltage. This is actually sent through the ignition coils where it is being transformed to a higher voltage charge. This high voltage charge will be needed by your spark plugs to start your engine. The ignition coils play a vital part in getting the engine to start which is why these should be looked after properly. Nothing is more annoying than planning to go somewhere but your vehicle’s engine thinks otherwise. Leave it to the Best Mobile Mechanics in Plano to help you out. We will make sure that your ignition coils will be functioning at their very best. Get in touch with us to perform a diagnosis today by calling our expert field officers today.

What is a Spark Plug?
A spark plug is only a few inches long, depending on the vehicle where it applies to. It’s quite sturdy to touch and a bit heavy looking at the size of them. Each and every vehicle is equipped with a few spark plugs that are located on the engine block. All of these spark plugs are being activated with an electric current that causes them to generate a small spark. A spark you say?! Yes, this spark is needed with every combustion engine as a small explosion is needed to go off inside of your engine. It’s a minor explosion that will active the burning of your gasoline which will make your cylinders in your engine cycle. Once set in gear this small combustion will be turning your wheels, making you move forward or backwards, depending on the gear your vehicle is in.

What does the Ignition Coil do?
As mentioned previously, the ignition coils converts the lower voltage from the battery to a higher voltage. The Ignition coil amplifies the 12 volts received from your battery until it reaches your spark plugs. The 12 volt has been slowly increasing until they had enough voltage to them to be able to jump the small gap between the spark plug. Once the voltage is high enough it will be able to generate the spark that is needed to fire up the engine. If your ignition coils are not properly working this will result in your spark plugs not being able to spark. Without that spark, you and your vehicle will be stranded. Luckily, DCI the Best Mobile Mechanic in Plano is here to provide assistance to all of our new and existing customers. Get in touch with us now!

Spark Plug Failure
Even though a spark plug might seem tougher than a nail, they can fail just like any other part on your vehicle. Most older vehicles suffer from these spark plug failures. The newer models also occasionally have those problems, but the older models rely more on their spark plugs than the newer models. Spark plugs intend to fail once they’re wet or cold. These problems often occur during the wintertime when over-cranking a cold engine causes it to flood. That flood causes the spark plug to malfunction. You can leave it to our Mobile Mechanics to help you out. But, it’s better to prevent it from happening so stay away from those local repair shops and give DCI Plano’s Best Mobile Mechanic a call. You won’t be disappointed.

Replacing these Parts
Both the spark plugs and the ignition coils are easy to replace. Replacing the spark plugs means that you will pull a cord that will unplug them, unscrew the spark plugs and screw in a new one. Make sure that when placing a new one you don’t tighten it too much. If you do, this will result in your spark plug breaking inside your engine which will result is a very expensive repair. Fortunately for you, our highly skilled and experienced mechanics will know exactly what torque force will need to be used for every individual vehicle when it comes to replacing these new spark plugs. Replacing the ignition coils is also a fairly easy job to pull of and is actually similar to replacing the spark plugs. Just pull the plug on the end where it’s attached to the spark plug. Secondly, you can remove the pins that keep them snug and separated from the engine’s cooling fan. Than plug some new ones in and you’re good to go. Always make sure to replace them in the same order as when you took them off or a misfire will occur. Unsure how to proceed? You know we are just one call away to help you out!
