What do ignition system repair services include?

A vehicle ignition system ignites or fires the spark plugs to start up the engine. With a damaged ignition system, an engine may stop running correctly. Further, ignition system damage could be the reason a car will not start.

Ignition system repair concerns two main parts. The first one is the ignition switch, where a driver places and turns a key to start a car. And the second main part is the electronic ignition, which powers the starter. Here’s a list of common ignition repairs you can book on Airtasker.

Ignition system assessment

If you’re not sure what’s wrong with your ignition system, a mechanic can come over to assess the issue. Afterwards, they can give you a rough quote for the repair so you can plan. Your Tasker can also help you source the materials for the best prices. When you’re ready to pay for an ignition system repair, feel free to post another request on Airtasker. You can find many experienced, rated, and reviewed mechanics on our platform. 

Spark plug replacement

Spark plugs may be small, but they are crucial to getting an engine to start. Bad spark plugs can cause difficulty in starting a car, unusual vibrations under the bonnet, increased fuel consumption, and other auto problems. These tiny parts tend to go through wear and tear over time, which is why you’ll have to replace them at some point. Spark plug replacement generally involves removing and replacing the spark plugs. Your mechanic may also inspect the engine head threads and ignition wires. Then, the mechanic will test the vehicle to make sure everything is working correctly. 

Ignition cable replacement

Faulty ignition cables can cause the same problems as bad spark plugs. For this reason, your mechanic should also check the ignition cables when replacing spark plugs. Ignition cable failure is often a result of defective parts in the surrounding area. Replacing an ignition cable is a straightforward process. Typically, your mechanic will use special testing tools to check each cable. Then, they will replace the bad cables with new ones. 

Ignition lock repair or replacement

The ignition lock is the part where you insert your key. If you’re having problems adding or removing the key from the ignition, you might have a bad ignition lock cylinder. A faulty ignition lock cylinder may also be the reason behind a car’s inability to start, a hot ignition switch, or engine shutting off during travel.  

Ignition coil replacement

Water entry or old spark plugs are common reasons for ignition coil failure. Ignition coil failure is a standard car problem, which sometimes prevents an engine from starting. A bad ignition coil can also cause engine sputtering, shaking, or misfiring. If you have a faulty ignition coil, you should get a replacement. Also, consider getting a spark plug replacement to preserve your ignition coils.

Ignition barrel repair Subaru Impreza 1998


Ivanhoe VIC, Australia

5th May 2020

Someone stole our family car Subaru Impreza GX 1998. After it was found and returned by the police on the next day, it starts and drives, but the ignition barrel is damaged. Now, the key wouldn't go to position 0; the engine turns off in position 1 already. The key also wouldn't turn to position 4 (the engine starts with a key in position 3). Also, previously to turn off the engine and extract the key, it required to press the key towards the ignition barrel slightly and then turn it to 0. Now, as said, the key wouldn't go to 0 either 4 positions, while it rotates loosely inside the barrel between positions 1 and 3. I don't want to replace the barrel because first I don't have a budget for it, and also I wish to use my original key which opens the car. So, I am after some specialist, who can fix the ignition barrel without replacing it and is generous and understanding enough to make it properly for the maximum price which I can afford in the current situation ($150).

Ignition switch or coil replacement


Heidelberg West VIC 3081, Australia

14th Mar 2021

About 6 weeks ago i would have trouble starting my car up . I would put my key in the ignition and the car wouldn't start it would only make a cranking noise. Until after a few times it would eventually just start and away i go. Over the past weeks its been more temperament and as I drive i have been feeling here and there loss of power on acceleration and noticed that the car was chewing more fuel. Until this week go to work start the car off i go to work then off home and a couple of days ago as i wad on the road the car pulled back on acceleration and lost severe power then completely stalled but a few minutes later on the road again. Yesterday same sort of day journey back home and the car did the same thing but this time completely drained. Left it over night go it towed home car started again now put fuel checked battery all good but i feel the loss of power constantly as i am driving almost like a jerk ...so i think the ignition switch or coil is probably fried. I am a tradie and need my car everyday i have resheduled my work tomorrow to hopefully resolve the problem. Thankyou ☺ nissan x trail t30 2.5ltre 5 speed manual
