Ignition systems servicing

A vehicle's ignition system is designed to ignite a fuel-air mixture and plays an important role in how the vehicle functions.

When your car will not start, it can be a heartbreaking experience. It often seems this only ever happens when you have somewhere to be in a hurry. When you have to get back on the road or back on with your day, you need a mechanic in Blackwood you can trust. A vehicle's ignition system is designed to ignite a fuel-air mixture.

Without the ignition system the vehicle simply will not start. When you are faced with an issue with a car’s ignition system you should turn to Blackwood Dyno Tune & Service for the following reasons:

  • Decades of Service & Experience: We have been established for over 20 years and offer a combined experience of decades.
  • Courteous Customer Service: We are friendly, honest and dedicated to our customer service.
  • Fair & Competitive Prices: We pride ourselves on charging you only what you should be paying, and no more
  • Local and International Vehicle Experience: We can work on any type of car, old or new, European or Australian
  • Latest dyno and scan tool diagnostic technology

Our customers visit us for a range of reasons, from an alternator which will not catch to a car which will not start. There are several things which can go wrong with the ignition system such as:

  • Wear and Tear: The battery, spark plugs, distributor cap and wires will not last forever. Replacement of these items at regular intervals prevents larger ignition issues.
  • Weak Ignition: When spark plugs need to be replaced it is usually not all of them at once. A misfire in one or more sparkplugs will cause a weak start-up of the car and is an indication that a service may be needed soon.
  • Battery Issues: A battery can wear out or its terminals become corroded. We have the equipment to clean and test batteries or can replace them as needed.
  • Coil Wire is Frayed: When the charge is not carried to the spark plugs, the ignition fails to catch and the coil wire must be replaced.
