Tom was very friendly and easy going. He has good sense of humor and was always on time. I wanted to get my spark plugs replaced for my 2010 BMW 5 series. However he did not have the right socket for the spark plugs. So we had to reschedule. It took 2 more appointments to finally get the right socket. It was frustrating because I had to be there for all 3 appointments for 1.5 hrs each. But we persisted and it got fixed.

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.
