As the aftermarket leaders in ignition coils, Standard and Intermotor offer full line coverage for all makes and models, with the trusted quality and performance that only comes with more than 97 years of experience. This product category will be at the forefront for years to come, and Standard and Intermotor are leading the way with an expansive selection of quality ignition components, including cassette coils, coil-near-plugs, coil packs, and coil-on-plugs.
Ignition Coil-on-Plug (COP)
The ignition coil converts a low voltage current to high voltage energy that is delivered to the spark plug to ignite the air/fuel mixture within the cylinder. A coil-on-plug is designed to perform the functions of both the ignition coil which creates the spark energy, and the spark plug wire set that is designed to contain and deliver the high voltage energy to the spark plug. Standard® and Intermotor® Coil-on-Plug assemblies are engineered and tested to meet or exceed OE standards for spark energy, impedance, and durability.
A coil-on-plug is designed to perform the functions of the ignition coil (creating the spark energy) and the spark plug wire set (containing and delivering the high voltage energy to the spark plug). To ensure proper function, Standard® and Intermotor®Coil-on-Plug Assemblies feature premium-quality components.
We performed an extensive engineering analysis of OE DG500 and DG508 to Standard®. The engineers measured winding resistance, inductance and output voltage, spark, energy, waveform peak voltage and ringing, as well as a complete physical and sectioned comparison to OE.
Standard® Ignition Coils look, fit and perform like the original they replace with 100% end of the line production testing. The Standard®coils also provide an improved secondary winding design (additional winding bays) that helps prevent internal arcing and high-voltage breakdown.
As engine technology evolves, coil-on-plug technology will continue to play an increasingly important part of ignition systems. One such technology is the pencil coil. Standard® and Intermotor® are leading the way with quality parts and exceptional coverage for this growing category. Take our UF242 Ignition Coil
Water Intrusion and Premature Coil Failure
UF303 - Coils and Water Don’t Mix!
On some GM models (4.2 inline 6 cyl. LL8 VIN code S – PRO LL8), water intrusion will cause premature failure of the coil and spark plugs— it’s not a coil problem!
Signs of Premature Failure
If a customer complains of a rough idle and/or the MIL/SES light flashes on after a rain shower or car wash, this may indicate water intrusion. Check for possible DTC codes P0300 through P0306 and inspect the coils and spark plugs. If upon inspection of the coils, a white chalk-like build-up on the inside and/or outside of the spark plug boots is detected, the coils have been damaged and must be replaced—Standard hi-quality UF303 coils should be installed. It is also advised that the spark plugs be replaced.
Water can seep past the engine cam cover and collect below the coils in the spark plug wells of the cylinder head resulting in a possible misfire. To prevent this condition from reoccurring, the AIP seal must be replaced with a replacement seal that redirects the water away from the engine cam cover.
