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.

Fix Motorcycle Ignition Problem on DR-Z400E 2005


Sydney NSW, Australia

24th Sep 2022

Just bought this DR-Z400E 2005 ex-ADF (blackout switches, added kick-starter etc.) is located in Melbourne (Mitcham 3132), but can ride to you, and will be transported to Sydney (Waterloo 2017), where I have a second DRZ (DR-Z400E 2010 SUMO conversion without bottom end), once I get the right quote for transport of ca. $200. Spark plug shows very weak spark, when grounded against bike. Intake clearances are tight, but will be fixed in the next few days, once I find some shims. If you can supply, great, but I don't need a whole kit. Carb is running rich, as old plug was black, new spark plug gets wet, and exhaust is black. Issues present as: 1) Cold bike turning over fine, but not starting via kick-start or e-start, good compression; 2) After sufficient cranking (warm-ish engine), the bike can be roll-started down a steep driveway; manual pushing will not suffice; 3) Once bike is warm/hot, it can be both kick- and e-started, but will not reliably idle, i.e. I must use clutch, brake and throttle, just to make a u-turn or stop and start; 4) Idle screw sometimes makes a difference, as it was too high and is now stalling and not responding to idle screw (I may have impatiently confused very hot and warm motor conditions.); 5) Occasional misfire, when cold-carnking or even riding; Ask for anything else. I may or may not be able to find out more. Configuration: - Athena 440 Big Bore Kit - Power Bomb header and Yoshi muffler - KEIHIN FCR39 (possibly not jetted correctly) - 15T front / 41T rear (wanted to ride from MEL to SYD) - New SSB Lithium battery (190CCA, instead of 55CCA) - New spark plug - Fresh 98 octane petrol Anything else, just ask. For the right price (it's a DRZ ...), I'll consider any parts you can provide. Otherwise, I've got a whole bike for spares. Can't afford professional workshop/mechanic, and this bike is easy to diagnose and service. I'm new to bikes, and even I managed to get this far, but I don't have any parts here. - Due date: Flexible

Need ignition cables Re joined


Marrickville NSW, Australia

23rd Feb 2020

Doing up an old Mazda E2000. The last owners made a dodgy switch push button start without an ignition barrel. I now have the new barrel and new cables but need someone to re join the cables so it starts with a normal key. All cables seem colour coded so is a simple Rejoin but there is 1 extra cable that doesn’t seem to have a place to go. Just need it done correctly So I don’t blow up my van. Can come anytime between 6:30am to 3pm Mon to Friday or 6:30am to 12pm saturdays. Extra cash can be given for any parts or unforeseen work that needs to be done to get it right. Have more work on a second van if job done efficiently
