He is very genuine and not there to socialize. He was very cautious with my car and understood that this particular car is kinda tight to work in. I think he is perfect for my repairs in the future. I definitely am going to check if it's alright to tip him a 20 or something.

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.
