Ignition Cable (Spark plug wires) Replacement Service & Cost

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.

Patrick

Yelp has, once again, helped me find a very reliable/dependable service. Patrick was mentioned more than once on all the reviews so when I booked my appointment with Yourmechanic, I was crossing my fingers that they would send Patrick to look/inspect and work on my truck, and they sure did! Patrick showed up at my place of work as scheduled (7 a.m). Talk about prompt and punctuality (and utter convenience for me)! I contacted Yourmechanic because my brake warning light indicator suddenly lit up. I also decided to get the valve cover replaced since Meinekere commended it every time I would get my oil changed. Yourmechanic quoted me way lower than what Meineke quoted me for the same work/service. 25 percent less, to be exact. Upon inspection of my truck, he made recommendations for the needed service/work but, surprisingly, not including the valve cover and gasket replacement. I found Patrick to be very professional, efficient, honest and highly knowledgeable. Most importantly and what matters the most is that he is genuinely a very honest man (unlike some, if not most. of auto/car mechanics who will take advantage of one's knowledge, or lack thereof, when it comes to car maintenance/repairs/service) . I found his dedication to his profession remarkable as he spent just about all day as worked on my truck in the parking lot under the desert sun! After he's done with the service and test-driving my truck, he gave me some "post-service" tips/recommendations. Patrick is THE man! I found me my regular to go mechanic!

Chris replaced the valve cover gasket on my 4Runner. He did an amazing and thorough job, making sure to clean the clean the throttle body, intake manifold, and all other components while they were off the vehicle. He went above and beyond. Way better service than I would have gotten at a shop!
