SESSION ONE - CHAPTER FOUR
The standard ignition system is a crucial component of any gasoline-powered engine, providing the high voltage necessary to ignite the fuel-air mixture in the engine's combustion chambers. In this video, we'll explore the inner workings of the standard ignition system, including how the ignition coil works, the distributor unit's components, and the spark plugs' role in the ignition process.
We explore the ignition coil operation, the breaker points for older engines and electronic ignition types such as High-Energy Ignition (HEI). Parts discussed include the Ignition coil, breaker points, condenser, spark plugs, spark plug wires, ignition module, crankshaft sensor, camshaft sensor, and more.
This video compares four different kinds of ignition systems for car engines. A distributor-based single coil ignition system, a wasted spark ignition system, a coil-on-plug or direct ignition system, and an aftermarket racing coil near plug system.
