Lucas

Lucas was very communicative and thorough. He specifically sat down with me and showed me what was wrong with my car. I also really appreciated that he gave me options and left a lot of the decision-making up to my discretion. I never felt pressured or scared into fixing more than requested, which is different from the majority of mechanics I've encountered. HIGHLY recommend and will request him or at least refer to this site for further work on my vehicle. The work itself on my car had top quality parts/service! Big thanks!

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.
