Replacing the Porsche Ignition Coil

Porsche enthusiasts know that Porsche spark plugs are one of the most unique parts in the vehicle. Many owners like to change spark plugs to improve the performance and efficiency of their cars. With the ability to use high quality replacement spark plugs, any driver can greatly increase the performance of their car and save money at the same time.

Changing spark plugs to improve the performance of your car is simple to do. You need to understand the basic function of your vehicle's ignition coils before you attempt to replace them. The ignition coils are designed to control the amount of electricity generated by the engine when it is starting. If you have a high compression engine, you should have high-quality Porsche spark plugs to keep the combustion process going to maximize power.

Your Porsche Ignition Coil comes with two terminals - the first terminal is on the firewall to the left side of the engine compartment, and the second is on the passenger side. The terminals are soldered into the engine cover after the factory install, and should be very easy to remove. Many consumers mistakenly go ahead and remove both terminals to see if the process goes well. When it comes to replacing a Porsche Ignition Coil, it is best to leave the original installation intact. There are a number of reasons why this is the case - changing one or more coils can void the warranty, and damage the engine cover.

It is important to buy spark plugs that match your Porsche Ignition Coil because if the two don't match, the performance results will not be as great as they could be. You can easily tell the difference between different brands - platinum spark plugs have tiny metallic dots to indicate which bank of coils are bad, and yellow ones indicate which are good. If you can't determine the difference, it is safe to go ahead and purchase the platinum spark plugs and the yellow ones. On the other hand, by changing spark plugs that are within the same brand, you can get the best possible result and possibly even save money. Also, if you purchase a Porsche that has factory installed ignition coils, it is likely that the factory plug was changed as a result of an accident - the change will void its warranty.

Because replacing spark plugs is such a simple process, many Porsche owners do it themselves. There are a few hints you need to pay attention to when working on the ignition coils - make sure you have a steady hand, because it is very easy to burn yourself by pulling too hard on the terminals. In addition, you will need to work slowly so that the metal of the coil doesn't melt into your fingers. Porsche owners who have done this job before know that it takes just minutes for the new coil to completely cool.

Some Porsche owners use automotive tools to complete the job. These tools include: a pair of pliers, a wire cutters, a torx bit, a drill, a socket wrench, and a screwdriver. If you don't feel confident in completing this task yourself, contact a Porsche specialty shop. It is important to make sure that you do not damage the coil, because the alternator is not made to be replaced with copper, nickel, or steel coils. If you ruin the coils, you won't be able to get your Porsche car running as well. If you are unsure of how to do the job yourself, contact a Porsche specialty shop for help.
