Decoding Engine Check Light Warnings: Understanding Ignition Coil Pack Failures

The sudden illumination of the engine check light can send a ripple of concern through any vehicle owner, signalling potential issues lurking beneath the surface. Among the array of problems that could trigger this warning, one significant concern is ignition coil pack failure, often accompanied by multiple misfires on random cylinders.

Ignition coil packs are essential components responsible for supplying high-voltage electricity to the spark plugs, igniting the air-fuel mixture within the engine cylinders. When a coil pack fails, it can lead to weak or erratic sparks, resulting in misfires and compromised engine performance. These misfires typically occur across random cylinders, causing symptoms such as rough idling, engine hesitation, and decreased power output.

Addressing ignition coil pack failures promptly is crucial to prevent further damage and ensure optimal engine function. Skilled technicians can diagnose the issue using specialised diagnostic tools to pinpoint the faulty coil pack and replace it with a new one. Additionally, they may inspect surrounding components for any signs of damage or wear that could exacerbate the problem.
