What is your diagnostic strategy when it comes to ignition-related drivability problems? Are you swapping coils and spark plugs hoping it cures the problem? There is a better way.

In a one-hour webinar the experts from NGK will show you how the spark plug, coil and control system work together to ignite the air and fuel mixture. With this training, you will be able to diagnose and confirm the fix.

Questions that will be answered:

  • What influences the ignitability of a spark plug?
  • What is the difference between two- and three-wire coils?
  • How can you use current probes to diagnose ignition problems?
  • How can you trouble shoot the entire ignition circuit?
