The internal combustion engine that has been evolving for over 100
years now has gone through a lot of improvements, though it's already
an impressive machine. Time pass by and still it continues to evolve
because automakers manage to squeeze out a little more efficiency, or a
little less pollution. This consistent development results to a more
incredibly complicated, surprisingly reliable machine which makes it
perfect for the car consumers who is in need or who desires great
machine such as this.
Let's start with the basics. Your car engine converts fuel into the
motion needed to make your car run. This is achieved by burning
gasoline inside the engine. Because this process occurs within the car
engine, it is classified as an internal combustion engine. Needless to
say, the internal combustion engine is the reason why vehicles are able
to move from one place to another.
Internal combustion engines can be classified by their ignition system.
The ignition system goal is to ignite the fuel at exactly the right
time so that the expanding gases can do the maximum amount of work. If
the ignition fires at the wrong time, power will fall and gas
consumption and emissions can increase. Most engines use either an
electrical or a compression heating ignition system. Generally,
electrical ignition systems rely on lead-acid battery and an induction
coil to supply a high voltage electrical spark to ignite the air-fuel
mix in the engine's cylinders. Compression heating ignition systems on
the other hand rely on the heat created in the air by compression in
the engine's cylinders to ignite the fuel.
But for the ignition system to be able to function, it needs components
which have its own role to portray. It includes the spark plugs, the
ignition wires, and the distributor. The ignition system produces an
electrical charge and transmits it to the spark plugs through the
ignition wires. The charge first flows to a distributor. The
distributor has one ignition wire that goes in the center and four,
six, or eight wires (depending on the number of cylinders) coming out
of it. These wires send a charge to the spark plugs individually. The
process is exactly timed so the engine runs smoothly. Therefore, it is
the distributor that portrays the major task.
So eventually, your Mazda distributor will come to an end due to
constant use and as well as age. Repair can be done but it is wise to
have it replaced to avoid inconvenience when you're driving. Here at
Parts Train, we have an extensive range of replacement Mazda
distributors. Just browse our catalogues to find the precise Mazda
distributor for your Mazda model.
