Dave arrived on-time. In replacing the front brake pads, he was highly efficient (fast) in completing the job. He shown me the brake pad senor indicating there is only 1, not a pair of them. That fact saved me a few dollars on the bills.

Allen was early and took extra steps to make sure everything was done correctly. He even followed up the next day to confirm all was still good with the parts he installed! Will definitely work with Allen again if he has the time.

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.
