Ignition Cable (Spark plug wires) Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Ignition Cable (Spark plug wires) all about?

The ignition cables, also known as “spark plug wires” are part of the ignition system. They transfer the spark from the distributor or ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the air-fuel mixture, starting the engine.

Over time, the cables can get weak and break down. This will make it harder for the spark to reach the engine cylinders, resulting in engine misfires. The car may not start at all. If one of the spark plugs has gone bad, the car will still start and run, but it will run poorly.

Keep in mind:

  • Ignition cable failure is often caused by other failing pieces in the ignition system; a mechanic should check for any other malfunctioning parts, and replace any parts of the system that don’t work.
  • Every time the ignition cables are replaced, the spark plugs should be inspected.
  • Leaking oil or coolant can cause ignition wire failure. If this is the case, the cause of the leak should be repaired or replaced, or else the new ignition wires will quickly be damaged as well.

How it's done:

  • Scan the computer system in the car for codes.
  • Inspect ignition cables (look for white spots).
  • Ohm test on individual cables.
  • Remove and replace the cables if found faulty.
  • Inspect the spark plugs.
  • Clear the codes.

Our recommendation:

Ignition wires should be replaced at least every 60,000 miles, but whenever your car is serviced, it’s a good idea to have the entire ignition system inspected. Any time that you have spark plugs replaced, it’s a good idea to have the ignition wires replaced as well. If you notice that your engine is running poorly, you should schedule an inspection.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Ignition Cable (Spark plug wires)?

  • Check Engine light is on.
  • Engine misfires.
  • Poor gas mileage.
  • Engine may shake (light vibration).

How important is this service?

The fuel in your automobile is ignited by a spark. This starts with the ignition coil, which transforms low voltage power into extremely high voltage. This high voltage is transferred through the ignition cables, and to the spark plug, where a spark is created that ignites the engine’s fuel, and powers the engine.

When one or more ignition cables fail, this voltage will not be transferred from the ignition coil to the spark plugs, and the fuel will not be ignited. Depending on how many of your ignition cables malfunction, your car will either run poorly, or won’t run at all.

Started with being an hour late. Khoa is very nice and efficient, yet, when explaining the changes in my car or the work that had been just done.. "I don't know" was said a lot more than I have ever heard from an "expert" in the field. I understand he comes in to do a specific job and nothing more, but, clear explanations of the work he did would be appreciated. Also got a second opinion on the diagnosis of a "leaking battery" and the mechanic saw not nearly as a "severe" diagnosis from Khoa. Didn't know if he was just securing future jobs by up-playing other things wrong with my car.

I had a great experience with Kenneth. I took my car into the dealer on Monday after I got the light for a 100,000 mile service. I needed to get my spark plugs replaced, rear brake pads replaced, air filter replaced, power steering fluid flushed/replaced, and brake fluid flushed/replaced, and drive belts replaced. The dealer quoted me over $1,100. I had a good experience with Your Mechanic a few months ago and decided to give them a try. I ended up paying $460 and was extremely happy with the service. Kenneth was on time, outlined everything he was going to do before hand, was quick, and walked me everything he did at the end. He also pointed out that I should change my cabin filter, which was extremely filthy (dealer did not point this out). I would highly recommend him!
