Jason replaced the headlight in my car. Not a major job, but during the work he gave me some great recommendations about how to take care of my car. Jason was right on time, very professional, and knowledgeable. I really appreciated his friendly, positive attitude and his helpful tips. I'll definitely use YourMechanic again and I can recommend Jason highly.

Chet was very professional, knowledgeable and nice. He completed the work as requested and let us know about a couple of things that needed work. He also suggested new tires, even though he and the company don't sell tires. I feel very comfortable driving my Baja 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.
