Shaun

Shaun was perfect. Super pro. Courteous. Excellent. Had some oil drops under my Ford Explorer before Shaun came. He checked and told me it was nothing serious. After he did the oil change there was a oil on the road under the car. I cleaned as much as I could and will check in the coming days if oil is still leaking. For the rest he was fantastic.

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.
