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.

I was extremely pleased with the efficency and quality of work with Ben. This is so refreshing to encounter a technician with this skill level and experience. In addition Ben has a very nice personality. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would rate him a 10. The cost of the repair was more than fair and that had a lot to do with his experience and efficiency.

Tien was on time and very friendly. He didn't complete the pre- purchase review because he determined the car had failed after inspection of the suspension, cooling inspection and noting fluid leaks ( He didn't clarify if the leak residue is from a current issue or residue from a past repaired). I also specifically asked for an explanation of the indicator lights on the dash he did not address the lights on the dash, hopefully the indicator lights will be included in his report.

Arrived on time, quickly finished service. Found a few things that he cleaned up --- I am not a car person so don't exactly recall, but there was a random clip somewhere in the engine and a plug was missing from an oil change he thought. Very professional. For example, Robert came to my office so I couldn't come meet him immediately when he started/finished due to work, and he was very patient and understanding.

Scott showed up on time and knew what he needed to do in order to complete the task. Scott made sure to test the alternator prior to just replacing it hoping it was the problem. Scott made it a point to let me know he was here to fix the problem. Was able to check in with Scott throughout the process to see how things were going. Scott went out of his way to check other potential issues with the vehicle and let me know of other services I may need in the future. I will definitely be using Scott in the future
