The system that provides the electrical current or spark to ignite the air-fuel mixture in the combustion chambers. It includes the battery or magneto which sends electricity to the ignition coil if the ignition switch is on. The coil amplifies the electrical charge and sends it to the distributor where it goes through the points and is modified by the condenser. The distributor sends it along the high tension lines ( spark plug wires) to the spark plugs where it ignites the air-fuel mixture. Also see electronic ignition system.
Electrical system devised to produce timed sparks from engine spark plugs. Consisting of a battery, induction coil, capacitor, distributor, spark plugs and relevant switches and wiring.
the mechanism that ignites the fuel in an internal-combustion engine
a method for activating and controlling the combustion of fuel in an internal combustion engine
a pilot light or a spark generator that assures continuous ignition of the waste gases going through the burner in the flare tip
The system that produces and distributes the electrical spark to ignite the fuel mixture in the cylinders of a gasoline engine.
The ignition system contains the components that supply spark to the vehicle's spark plugs. These include the battery, the ignition coil, the distributor (including the cap and rotor), the spark plug wires, the ignition module, and the spark plugs themselves. Older cars also have ignition points and an ignition condenser.
The electrical system which provides the spark to ignite the air/fuel mixture in the engine. Normally the system consists of the battery, ignition coil, distributor, ignition switch, spark plugs and wiring.
Gasoline, natural gas, and propane-fueled engines all require an electrical spark to ignite the air fuel mixture and produce power. The collection of components that generates the spark and controls when it occurs is referred to as the ignition system. Typical components included in an ignition system are spark plugs, ignition coils, and trigger devices such as crank position sensors. Ignition systems on older vehicles require regular maintenance. Modern ignition systems are extremely reliable and typically require less frequent attention than older vehicles. For more info on trouble-shooting ignition systems, see Ignition System Testing.
A system that provides the electric current used to ignite the fuel/air mixture in the combustion chambers of the cylinders. Its parts include the coil, which amplifies the voltage it gets from the battery and sends it to the distributor, which directs the current to each spark plug at the proper time. In cars with distributorless ignitions, the engine management computer directs low voltage current to the spark plug coils and then to the spark plugs.
The major components, such as the battery, coil, ignition switch, distributor, high-tension wiring, and spark plugs, that provide the right spark at the right time to ignite the air/fuel mixture.
The various components that control the igniting of fuel in the engine's cylinders. The ignition system has two parts: the primary side (the distributor and electronic control module), and the secondary side (the ignition coil, distributor cap, rotor, spa
The ignition system of an internal-combustion engine is an important part of the overall engine system that provides for the timely burning of the fuel mixture within the engine. All conventional petrol (gasoline) engines require an ignition system. The ignition system is usually switched on/off through a lock switch, operated with a key or code patch.
