Replacing your spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor can be a relatively simple deterrent against potentially expensive wear and tear!
Spark Plug, Distributor Cap & Rotor Replacement
Plan to replace your spark plug wires after 60,000 miles. For distributor ignitions, the distributor cap and rotor also need to be replaced. Electrical components under the hood are exposed to moisture, oil, grease, and high temperature over time. The resulting breakdown of the spark plug wires, distributor cap, rotor, and insulation can attract electricity because they create an easier path to ground. Worn spark plugs also raise the car’s voltage requirements, which can force the ignition module and coil to produce ever-higher voltages and operate at higher temperatures. This cycle can cause ignition components to fail, and can lead to a variety of problems during driving.
Don’t Wait for Your Car to Fail!
Diagnosis can be challenging, time-consuming, and expensive, because problems will vary due to changes in temperature, heat, and moisture. If you have already experienced an ignition module or computer failure after 60,000 miles and haven’t replaced your spark plugs wires, distributor cap and rotor, the problem is likely to repeat itself… leading to the costly replacement of your car’s ignition module or computer.
