So, the ignition system has evolved over the years, to create at least 4 different types. Even though they are, completely different, they actually all have the same goal. To take a low voltage and turn it into a high voltage. Allowing the spark plug to ignite the air and fuel mixture, at the correct time.
Some of these types include:
- Distributor-Based Breaker-Point Ignition (Mechanical)
- Distributor-Based Electronic Ignition
- Distributor-less Ignition
- Coil-On-Plug Ignition
