Joshua arrived early to my appointment to fix the starter in my car, a very welcome sight on a rainy Friday night. After checking the symptoms, he quickly realized what I was told was a starter problem by AAA, was actually a connection problem instead. Not only did he understand the underlying problem, he promptly cleaned the connection and saved me almost $200.00. A+ mechanic and I would recommend YourMechanic to anyone. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Robert was just excellent. He was very professional and friendly, gave me plenty of notice on when he would arrive, and explained everything very clearly. He also was thorough, diagnosed the problem, located the defective unit and presented all the options clearly. It was a real pleasure, and he had the car fixed quickly, but also took a few minutes to do a quick inspection. The price was really fair. I couldn't be more satisfied of how it all went.

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.
