Kenneth

Couldn't be happier with Kenneth. He contacted me early to see about bumping up my appointment and worked around my schedule to look over my recent used car purchase. He quickly diagnosed the issue triggering the check engine light, explained what should be done, and even talked me through how to replace the necessary parts just in case i wanted to do it myself. Awesome.

Jason did a great job with the work he performed and was very friendly and helpful. He showed up on time and completed the job 15 min early. He was very knowledgeable which eased my anxiety of having someone I found online work on my baby. I would highly recommend Jason to anyone looking for a mechanic.

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.
