Ignition Cable (Spark plug wires) Replacement Service

What is the Ignition Cable (Spark plug wires) all about?

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.

Keep in mind:

  • Ignition cable failure is often caused by other failing pieces in the ignition system; a mechanic should check for any other malfunctioning parts, and replace any parts of the system that don’t work.
  • Every time the ignition cables are replaced, the spark plugs should be inspected.
  • Leaking oil or coolant can cause ignition wire failure. If this is the case, the cause of the leak should be repaired or replaced, or else the new ignition wires will quickly be damaged as well.

How it's done:

  • Scan the computer system in the car for codes.
  • Inspect ignition cables (look for white spots).
  • Ohm test on individual cables.
  • Remove and replace the cables if found faulty.
  • Inspect the spark plugs.
  • Clear the codes.

Our recommendation:

Ignition wires should be replaced at least every 60,000 miles, but whenever your car is serviced, it’s a good idea to have the entire ignition system inspected. Any time that you have spark plugs replaced, it’s a good idea to have the ignition wires replaced as well. If you notice that your engine is running poorly, you should schedule an inspection.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Ignition Cable (Spark plug wires)?

  • Check Engine light is on.
  • Engine misfires.
  • Poor gas mileage.
  • Engine may shake (light vibration).

How important is this service?

The fuel in your automobile is ignited by a spark. This starts with the ignition coil, which transforms low voltage power into extremely high voltage. This high voltage is transferred through the ignition cables, and to the spark plug, where a spark is created that ignites the engine’s fuel, and powers the engine.

When one or more ignition cables fail, this voltage will not be transferred from the ignition coil to the spark plugs, and the fuel will not be ignited. Depending on how many of your ignition cables malfunction, your car will either run poorly, or won’t run at all.

Nissan 200SX L4-2.0L - Car is not starting - Portland, Oregon
Jose arrived as scheduled to install a new distributor. I really like the way notifications are sent: mechanic is on the way, has arrived, etc. He is very cordial, friendly, easy going, and knowledgeable. After providing some more detailed info before starting the repair, Jose thought it might not be the distributor as previously diagnosed online. He didn't feel it would be proper to go through the needless replacement of a part if that wasn't the source of the problem. He determined and rightly concluded that the starter was the issue. A quick bang on it with some tools and the car started fine. Also took a picture to show me that even though the starter had been replaced once by Nissan, it was a remanufactured part instead of new. Jose turned the repair into an inspection thereby saving me money as well as an unnecessary repair. I have since placed an order for a starter, and one it arrives will be scheduling for Jose to come out again for installation.

Nissan 200SX L4-1.6L - Battery Light is on - San Jose, California
Tom was very professional and courteous. Very satisfied with the service he provided. He has a very good understanding of all the parts in the vehicle. It's a 5/5 for me but with the caveat that goes to a lot of mechanics (including Whitney): They generally assume that the customer doesn't know anything about the working parts in the car, and answer the queries with a defensive, passive-aggressive tone which can be annoying. Perhaps that is result of the customers they meet. I felt that way, and had to stop him by saying that I am a physicist (and have experience working with thermocouples, pumps and other mechanical parts)- which obviously, I don't like to do.
