Casey

I am so happy about my experience with yourmechanic.com. Casey was very knowledgeable, communicative, and professional. The cost of the work done was much lower than what I had been quoted at the repair shop. One thing I especially liked about Casey, was that he seemed real about what needed to be done ASAP and what I could work on at a later date. With other places, I feel like they word things in an alarming matter to try and get me to do it all at once, which I'm just not able to afford. I hope I have more experiences like this, as I will be booking all of my work through yourmechanic.com from now on! Thank you!

Ken showed up bright and early for my inspection appointment at my house. He was very nice and professional and went through a 150 point inspection check list very thoroughly. Overall, he thought my new used car was in pretty good shape and gave it a clean bill of health. If I have any other work I need done I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to Ken again.

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.
