When ever you change your Sparkplugs, its always a good idea to change your Spark Plug wires as well. Why? Unfortunately, your spark plugs and ignition wires never get to rest for when the engine is running.
Spark plug wires transfer the spark from the distributor or ignition coil to the plugs, this spark then ignites the air-fuel mixture in the combustion chamber of your engine. This process starts with the ignition coil, which transforms low-voltage power into extremely high voltage by the transferring of this energy through the ignition wires creates heat. Over time, the ignition wiring can become brittle, crack or breakdown.
In such cases, a weak or non-existent spark can cause the failure of the fuel in your engine’s cylinder to ignite causing your engine to run poorly or not run at all.
