                                    Ignition Coils for Mercedes Benz

 

Most Mercedes Benz vehicles use a twin spark ignition system, This means that there are 2 spark plugs and 2 spark plug wires for each cylinder, but one ignition coil that is designed to deliver power to both spark plugs. Some newer Mercedes use a single coil on plug, and the older Mercedes use distributors and coil packs. Ignition coils are a commonly replaced item in Mercedes Benz vehicles. A bad ignition coil in your Mercedes can cause the engine to feel like it's "missing", "surging" or "hiccuping" as its driving. This is called "misfiring".

Common misfire codes are P0301 = Cylinder 1 all the way up to P0312 = Cylinder 12. A misfire can be very slight. The vehicle computer is usually good at monitoring the cylinders for misfires. When you have a misfire, you want to check everything related to that cylinder, including the ignition coil, spark plug wires, spark plugs, wire harness, and fuel injector. 

A very common question that is asked is "How far can I drive with a bad ignition coil?".

We recommend to only drive very short distances. Do not drive a prolonged period of time with a misfiring engine as raw fuel can cause damage to your catalytic converter. While in many cases, the catalytic converter may survive a prolonged period of time while driving with a misfire, it will still shorten the life of it. Many drivers of older vehicles notice that a misfire seems to damage a catalytic converter quickly. What actually happens in these situations is the catalytic converter was at the end of its useful service life, and the misfire quickly finished it off.
