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.

I recently purchased a vehicle and the check engine light came on soon after. Brikk came on time, explained the process, and gave detailed information on what he was looking for and how to correct it. The experience felt like I was talking to a friend than a mechanic. I will book Brikk every time I have an issue.

I had issues with my car not starting. It would turn over but not start. I knew that it had something to do with my fuel not reaching to start the car. however Joseph told me it was most likely my battery. which didn't make sense, because if it was my battery the car wouldn't even try to start like it was. At the end of my appointment he was sure it was the battery, so I started the car and drove it all the way out to west valley to replace the battery. replaced the battery and my car wouldn't start at all. It wasn't the battery and the mechanics basically laughed in my face because it was obviously (and according to them any mechanic would know it wasn't). I even suggested to Joseph that it could be the fuel filter or pump but I dont think he wanted to look. I ended up having to tow my car all the way to a Firestone and they told me it was DEFINITELY my fuel pump. so not only am I out the $70 for my appointment, I'm out $70 to get it towed. very unhappy with this situation. the company said I need proof that it wasn't the battery, but now I dont have a way to drive all the way out to west valley for the mechanics to print out a thing saying it wasn't. so definitely never using this service again. it was a complete mistake.

While I wish that Nathan could have provided me with better news about my car, he is a very thorough and knowledgeable professional. He showed up on time and carefully went over all of my problem areas on my 2009 VW Rabbit. Based on our discussion, I decided not to pour more money into fixing the problems with the car and instead got a pretty good price for trading it in.
