Patrick showed up early for our appointments, went over the issues of my car and laid out the options of what I could do afterwards. He is very down to earth and is honest about the problem at hand. My car was having a problem overheating so after inspecting the car and troubleshooting he said that the car might have to require work on it up to $800+ which they could do but he suggested that there were other cheaper options for me to try. I would totally recommend him.

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.
