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.

Joe's an excellent mechanic with many years of experience he shows up before time to get the job started. He replaced my timing belt and water pump and fan belts on my 2002 Toyota 4Runner. I purchase the parts from Advance Auto Parts but it had a defective gasket he had to come back and redo it because of the gasket. He rescheduled the appointment a few days later and finish the job perfect. I suggest instead of buying your own Parts like I did get your parts from Joe this way everything is guaranteed with no extra labor charges.

Ben was great - very friendly, and clearly knew what he was doing. I have nothing negative to say other than being significantly late relative to the appointment window (9-10 am appt. versus 12 pm arrival), which was ironically a result of car trouble. The scheduling process through the yourmechanic.com website was very easy, and I really liked the way the work was documented via picture and audio by Ben. When finished - Ben kept out the old parts for my review, and he discussed everything he did during the work. It was super convenient to have the work done at my residence, and I have a sense of comfort with the 12-month warranty and BBB accreditation - hopefully something that will never need to be tested. I felt that the pricing was competitive, especially when considering the convenience of having the mechanic come to me.
