Ben

First off, I don't ever write reviews for anything but Ben did such an incredible job that I had to. He came early, and was very polite. He was very professional and clearly knew what he was talking about. Since I have a VW Beetle, its hard to find a mechanic who knows about these cars. He explained everything he was doing in order to find the problem, and it only took him about 15 minutes. Very fast and experienced. I booked my service appointment with him too because I know he will do a great job. Overall great experience with Ben and would definitely recommend him to my friends.

He got my car running after not running for several years. He replaced the gas pump which failed and he adjusted the carburetor so that the engine would run smoothly. He also hooked up a loose wire that made my tachometer function.

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.
