Gone are the days when we needed spark testers, circuit test tools, jumper leads, code testers etc, etc and worst of all someone to help us test our ford ignition coils.
When I first saw this tool I was fascinated enough to buy one and then found it good enough to sell on this website. Such a simple to use tool it was a long time in coming but good old technological advances has brought it here.
So next time you have a feeling that a coil might be had it, or on the way out this is what you do.
In this case of the six cylinder Falcon. Remove the cover from the top of the engine and expose the coils. Start the motor and let it warm up. Most coil problems don’t appear until the engine is warm.
Now read the instructions that come with the testing tool and your good to go. Simply flop the end of the tool onto the top of the coil and watch the lights. Bingo, the culprit is found. Now you can replace the coil or coils and your good to go.
It’s come to my attention of late that when it comes to diagnosing a miss in the Falcon engine most mechanics find it easier to remove and replace all the ignition coils. Now I would be the first to agree that this is the easiest way around a miss that developes suddenly in your Falcon. Run the test find a code that says a miss in the coils and then replace all the coils.
Well at anything between $30 and $80 a coil go ahead if dollars don’t mean anhyting to you, but hey, most of us need all the dollars we can get, and most times there is nothing wrong with the rest of the coils that you are throwing in the bin.
Most coils will last for at least 15000ks indeed we have one set that has done overe 300,000ks so you could be throwing away a hundred thousand k’s or more of motoring. Now the saving could do a few nice things; like take your wife out to dinner, buy a couple of tanks of petrol, a new tyre, four cartons of beer, a couple of months service for your mobile phone and such.
Every Falcon owner at some time or another has experienced the dreaded miss in the motor.
Since we specialise in the supply of Ignition coils for the BA BF and FG Falcon we see these stories all the time, good for us if you decide to throw out perfectly good coils, but we really don’t want to see you through your dollars away.
Now we can supply you with the easiest way yet to determine if any of the coils are faulty.
Simple to use the tool will give you an answer within minutes, which can lead to a substantial savings in diagnostic cost and or the replacement of coils you don’t need by diagnosing the coil still in the car.
