The high voltage charge that the ignition distributor transfers between your coil and spark plugs is what fires up your engine when you turn the key. This process is created with a rotor and a set of contact points. Depending on how old your vehicle is, there are different types of ignition distributors. Vehicle’s which feature an old-style distributor use mechanical breaks at the contact points to disrupt the flow of the current, which creates a high electrical voltage needed to spark the combustion process. Newer vehicles use a computer to track the power levels, which breaks the circuit at the correct point to ignite the coil. Due to their advanced technology, newer systems last a lot longer than older ones, which is why it’s especially important to check the state of your distributor if you have an older car. Within our range, you’ll find a great choice of products for all vehicle makes and models, simply enter your registration number into the tool provided and our system will pull relevant products suitable for your car.
