Highly recommended!
Steven's services was exceptional, he was on time, very personable, experienced and diagnosed the issue with my car quickly. I had my car in to a local Fletches service shop because of a heavy vibration sound and the shop produced a list of problems with my vehicle, the most important issue to them and the cause of the problem "was, my motor mounts were bad". After the quoted a price to me of $900, I decided to not have the service, I researched doing this myself, but it seemed complicated. I found YourMechanic by searching the web got a quote and was "SUPRISED" that the quote was $500 less. I booked the appt. and when Steven came out he quickly diagnosed that "NONE" of my mounts were bad, and that the problem was a misfire and I needed a tune up. Funny thing is the local Fletchers didn't even mention a tune-up in the list of things I needed. The car still needs some other work, but Steven diagnosed and fixed the problem quickly, and saved me money. I am sold and very impressed with YourMechanic, I will be using you and Steven again.

Mark is very professional, punctual and efficient. He made sure that everything is done right.
I made an appointment with Mark to fix spark plugs/cables issues caused by an earlier service. He showed me the old parts and explained what's involved. Then he replaced them with new parts, did a test drive, and asked me to do a test drive as well. The problem was solved completely and I'm very satisfied with his service and professionalism.

Braxton was great! I was a little late for the appt and he waited for me. He fixed the misfire on my car in no time AND even zip-tied my window button arm thingy that's just been dangling off my door for over a year, so that was tight. 10/10 would recommend. B)

Raul obviously knows his way around an engine. He is very professional and also nice to talk to. He explained everything he was going to do and I felt like he enjoyed his work.,and more importantly, I felt that I was informed ,which I appreciate very much. He has a great positive, enthusiastic personality and I would recommend him to anyone who needs reliable mechanical work ;whether you know anything about your own engine or not. I feel I've found somebody I can call whenever I need assistance.

Ignition Cable (Spark plug wires) Replacement Service

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.
