Ignition coils like the Accel 300+ coil are used to provide spark to your spark plugs. Most vehicles make use of one ignition coil, but some have multiple coils. The 300+ coil is basically a transformer that converts 12-volt DC power into electrical voltage. Ignition coils are filled with oil to keep them cool.
Of course, the Accel 300+ coil is essential for starting your vehicle. If you have only one ignition coil, and it is not working, your engine simply won't start. For vehicles with multiple coils, if you lose one of them, some of the symptoms may include hard starting, poor engine performance, a lack of power, and decreased gas mileage. Your "check engine" light will likely come on if you need to replace one of your 300+ coils.
Problems can occur with your Accel 300+ coil if it develops a leak in the oil supply. The ignition coil may also simply wear out over time. You should be able to use a hand-held scanner to detect a bad ignition coil. If you are familiar with them, you may be able to diagnose the problem yourself without a scanner, particularly if your vehicle uses multiple coils.
The 300+ coil is suitable for all vehicle makes and models. It is a high-end aftermarket part intended for higher performance, and can provide your vehicle with a greater starting boost and more engine power due to a hotter spark. Replacing bad ignition coils as they occur helps to keep your engine running smoothly and efficiently.
