GENERAL INFORMATION

Prevention

For check of the coil of ignition it is necessary to use an ohmmeter.


Removal

Ignition coil arrangement on models of 1,6 l
The arrow noted an arrangement an octane proofreader.

Detachment from the coil of ignition of the electric socket on model of 2,0 l

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. The coil of ignition of a cylindrical form is attached by bolts to the internal surface of the left wing about the top fastening of a rack of a forward suspension bracket. On the SV models 14 NV, 16 and 18 SV on an arm of the coil of ignition the switchboard fastens (see rice. An ignition coil arrangement on models of 1,6 l).
2. Remove a weight wire from the accumulator.
3. Disconnect from the ignition coil the electric socket with wires of low voltage (see rice. A detachment from the coil of ignition of the electric socket on model of 2,0 l).
4. Keep in mind that on models with the amplifier of steering one of bolts of fastening of the coil of ignition also fixes a tank arm with liquid for the amplifier of steering.
5. Remove the ignition coil.
On models with the cylindrical coil of ignition unscrew a nut and remove a fixing clip from the ignition coil.

Check

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. For check of the coil of ignition disconnect from it wires of low voltage and high-voltage wires. Using an ohmmeter, check resistance of primary winding of the coil of ignition, connecting ohmmeter clips to contacts "+" or 15, and "–" or 1. Check сопротив a leniye of a secondary winding of the coil of ignition for what connect contacts of an ohmmeter to contact 4 and to one of contacts of primary winding of the coil of ignition. On models with the engine 20 XEJ resistance of windings of the coil of ignition have to correspond to technical characteristics. On other models resistance of primary winding of the coil of ignition has to be less than 1 Ohm, and resistance of a secondary winding has to be in limits of 4 000 - 12 000 Ohms.
2. If resistance of windings of the coil of ignition does not correspond to the required values or there is a short circuit or break of a winding of the coil of ignition, the coil of ignition needs to be replaced.

Installation

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. Installation is made in the sequence, the return to removal. Do not mix the wires going to primary winding of the coil of ignition as in this case polarity of the coil of ignition will be changed. In this case the engine will work, but spark plugs will wear out much more intensively. Also start of the engine will be complicated and to be observed unstable operation of the engine.
2. In the presence before a vvinchivaniye of bolts of fastening of the coil of ignition check that the condenser of suppression of hindrances is in the place.
