    Son Of A BITCH!! I think I just found my sporatic miss Ive been hunting down. Brother did the plugs for a while back while I was doing oil and shit, after reading this I asked where he used the dielectric grease (I had to buy him some) and he said he used a q-tip and put it in the ends of the plug wire on both the plug and coil end to keep them from sticking. Guess Ima hafta clean that shit out and do my OWN tuneup next time.

    So I took the time today and got out in the miserable Louisiana heat and humidity to redo my plugs. They were gapped at .55 (was told that was appropriate) and found out one of my MSD wires wouldnt clip onto the plug because the end of the wire was way way down inside the boot. Trimmed about half an inch off the end of the boot, it clipped on and viola! Also found that my upper radiator hose is almost flat as can be through the straight part of it. Car has never run hot, in fact it doesn't even get to halfway on my temp gauge. Hopefully this will help with my slight little miss. Thanks Sarge!!

    I sure hope you mean .055 not .55

    In saying that, .055 is a fair gap compared to the standard .040

    Cool Plugs

    My 2002 Formula has 92000 miles. I dont think the previous owner changed the plugs. Do you guys think they will come out without breaking or striping in the head?
