Delphi Product & Service Solutions announces 10 new ignition coils covering more than 800,000 vehicles including BMW, Jeep, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen and Subaru applications from 1991 to 2012. Part numbers include: GN10410, GN10434, GN10459, GN10461, GN10463, GN10508, GN10553, GN10554, GN10590 and GN10634.
Why Ignition Coils Fail
Ignition coils operate in a tough environment. Stresses created by vibration, temperature changes and even the failure of spark plugs and other components can cause ignition coil wiring to break or short out. The insulation inside the ignition coil can also fail, causing energy to escape.
Delphi offers four reasons to choose its brand of ignition coils:
1. OE Engineered
Delphi ignition coils are engineered to the same stringent standards as the parts the company makes for the top global OEMs. Every product Delphi sells is backed by its team of OE engineers and designers and is built with OE-tested and validated components.
2. Over 100 Years of Expertise
Delphi has been a leading manufacturer of OE ignition components for more than a century. Today, we manufacture more than 23 million each year. Delphi’s all-makes ignition coil product offering includes more than 230 SKUs covering 95 percent of North American vehicles in operation. As a leading Tier 1 supplier to the top 25 global vehicle manufacturers, the company says it understands the vehicles that technicians service and applies its OE engineering and high-quality standards to every part the company sells.
3. Superior Materials
Delphi ignition coils are made with application-specific materials that meet each engine’s unique performance requirements, down to the small details. Delphi carefully selects epoxy formations to balance the high temperature and thermal shock demands that ignition coils encounter. The company also uses both high-grade silicon steel and a composite material in the lamination stack for a more effective heat transfer directly to the core. This minimizes energy losses and increases the lifespan of its parts. Delphi stainless steel spark plug spring avoids corrosion and radio interference.
4. Innovative Design
Delphi says its OE experience allows the company to create specialized designs for ignition coils that last longer and perform better. The company’s patented high voltage design feature reduces stress on the epoxy and improves the durability of our plug top and pencil coils. Its coil winding process and insulation material are held to higher standards than industry practice, the company adds. And, Delphi says its magnet expertise means that its magnets will always meet the engine’s demands.
