Theodore

Theodore was very meticulous with his work. Since I couldn't find anyone in the Seattle area, he came all the way from Redmond. He changed all the spark plugs in my car. I was thinking of changing all the ignition coils of my engine but Theodore insisted I should change the one that reported misfire and helped me save some money. He also spent some time diagnosing other problems I had - screeching sound from the air conditioner and suggested what I should do. Also he advised me to change the air conditioner filter and buy it from Amazon because it is cheaper.

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.
