Best Answer

No. On "conventional" ignition systems, i.e., those with typically a single ignition coil and a distributor with distributor cap, the spark plug boot is that portion of the individual ignition wire, running to each spark plug, that terminated the ignition wire at the spark plug and provides the wire's electrical connection to the spark plug.

In newer, "plug on coil" systems that do not utilize a distributor and wires, and that are characterized by having an individual ignition coil mounted atop each spark plug, the boot is that portion of the ignition coil that pushes down over and on to the spark plug. Some few designs use a replaceable boot. Most incorporate the boot into the coil assembly.
