Turned out good. Tien my mechanic came early, and got straight to the job. After checking the oil from the oil change he did, instead of lying and saying that it's good, he saw it was missing 1 more quart. So he called it in, and picked up the extra quart to finish the job. Did the 50 point inspection, told me the 2 extra fluid were low, and finished everything great. Had a good day after that. Thanks Tien

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.
