Volkswagen is a German brand automobile founded in 1937 in Berlin, Germany. Throughout the years, Volkswagen has manufactured vehicles with exceptional performance and comforts, but they can develop issues with the ignition coil. This component is integral in the performance of the engine.

The ignition coil is small in size but has a huge responsibility in regards to a vehicle’s engine. Let’s take a closer look.
