Sparky Knew Best

By December 30, 2012

Follow me on:

Your engine relies on a strong spark to run smoothly and efficiently. Most car owners replace their spark plugs regularly. But did you know that you can lose a huge percentage of spark intensity to worn spark plug wires? Even the smallest crack in your plug wires' insulation can cause weakened spark or even engine misfiring, a condition that can trigger the dreaded Check Engine Light. If your plug wires are questionable, replace your spark plug wires today.
