Doral’s Auto Repair offers ignition coil testing and ignition coil replacement service in San Leandro, CA. We are a family owned full service auto repair shop that provides comprehensive auto care.
An ignition coil transforms battery voltage (12 volts) to the very high voltage (20,000 volts or higher) that causes spark plugs to generate sparks that ignite the fuel-air mixture. Depending on your vehicle, it may have a single ignition coil (older vehicles tend to have just one) or multiple coils – one for each cylinder.
Signs that Ignition Coil May Need Replacement
No start condition (or difficulty starting your car) does not necessarily mean that the battery is dead. It could be that ignition coil got damaged due to heat or electrical overload.
Engine misfire can be caused by a faulty ignition coil.
Loss of power or slow acceleration – a faulty ignition coil can cause loss of power, and a Check Engine Light might come on.
Immediate negative consequences of a malfunctioning ignition coil include lower fuel efficiency and loss of power. However, if the faulty ignition coil is causing a misfire, incompletely burned fuel will enter the catalytic converter and can quickly cause permanent damage – which will necessitate expensive repairs.
If you suspect ignition coil failure or notice that your vehicle does not have the power it used to have, bring your car to Doral’s Auto Repair in San Leandro. Our nationally ASE certified technicians will professionally diagnose and repair your vehicle. All repairs are backed by an industry leading 36 months / 36,000 miles warranty.
