Suggested reads about Ignition Systems Repair

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.
