What spark plugs and wires?
Spark Plug Wires While most newer vehicles use a coil-on-plug (COP) design for ignition, older vehicles still need plug wires to get the spark from the distributor to the plugs. The spark plugs themselves can serve anywhere from 30K to 100K miles before needing replacement, but the wires can degrade and crack much sooner.
