There are several different factory-installed coils in your Toyota car, van, SUV, or truck. What they do depends upon what type they are.
The Kinds of Coils in Your Toyota Vehicle
One coil you rely on daily is the ignition coil. It helps the ignition system produce the electricity that your spark plugs use to ignite to air-and-fuel mix inside the engine's combustion chamber.
The stator coil is another. It's an electric part of a motor that helps power the vehicle's charging and other electrical systems.
Then there are the coil springs. They're an important part of your vehicle's suspension system. They support the vehicle's weight, maintain alignment angles, and absorb the impact that comes with driving over uneven road surfaces or trails.
How to Spot Bad Coils
Even the best coil can rust, degrade, or become too weak to work properly. These are some of the signs of that failure:
- Engine misfires
- Trouble starting
- Reduced fuel efficiency
- Weak sparking
- Your vehicle sags or sways
- Uneven or excessive tire tread wear
- Weird noises from the underbody
If you notice any of these symptoms, perform an inspection of the part you're concerned about. If that reveals a coil that needs replacing, make sure that you do it as quickly as possible. You also want to choose the best replacement coils for your vehicle. Those are always genuine Toyota, since they're guaranteed to fit your model straight out of the box.
