Jerel was on time and very professional. He let me know there were a couple of things I needed to have worked on for my car, but not in a high pressure way. I would recommend Jerel to others and will re-book again. Thanks, Jerel!

Andy did a great job. Was prompt and actually called and offered to come earlier which I appreciated. I had my car diagnosed at Burnett Automotive but their quote was very expensive Andy quickly diagnosed the problem which was NOT what Burnett said it would be. Andy saved me unnecessary work on my car. I will definitely use Andy and yourmechanic.com in the future!

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.
