The workings of a car's mechanism can be a hard thing to understand. Sometimes interest is necessary in order to acquire knowledge about certain subjects so when it comes to cars only those who have a heart-felt fascination about this area will be able to understand the way it works better than those who do not take an interest. However, a basic know-how of how car works is a necessary evil especially for car owners so that you will be able to tell when your car is acting up or not.
A basic function of the car is the starting process which is accomplished through the ignition system of the car. This system contains a spark plug found at the cylinder head of the internal combustion engine. The spark plug produces an electric spark that triggers off the burning of the compressed aerosol gasoline from the engine. Combustion then starts giving energy to the car's whole mechanism.
But one vital element that makes all of these activities possible is the spark plug wires which connect the spark plugs and the distributor. Channeling hundreds and thousands of volts, the spark plug wires are heavily insulated so that it will be able to withstand the heat that passes through it. Without the insulation it may easily get worn since it is used every time the car is started. Long use can result to brittleness of the wires and the interior or core also accumulates cracks. If this happens there will be no effective handling of electrical energy anymore. The energy will be redirected to other parts thus result to engine misfiring, jagged running and busted spark plugs. Maintenance of the spark plug wires is not that costly because it can last for a year before showing the mentioned signs of malfunctioning.
The Acura cars as well as other brands have spark plug wires installed in the system. Acura cars especially have high performance spark plug wires for an efficient ignition. If your Acura shows any of the signs that of malfunctioning — misfiring and rough running, the spark plug wires could be the problem. Replacing them with a new one will be the best thing to do in order to rectify the problem and bring back your car's great performance.
