I got a diagnosis from Jay on my BMW's Service Engine Soon light and he traced the problem to the Secondary Air Injection Valve. Jay explained to me and I learned the functionalities of the Secondary Air Injection System. He then replaced the offending part when it became available in a few days. I was also pleased that I received credit for the cost of diagnosis toward the cost of replacing the valve (parts and labor). YourMechanic is the way to go!

All about Ignition Cable (Spark plug wires) Replacement

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.
