    Well, if it were me I would have changed the wires too. Are they original, and how many miles on the car?

    Other than that, I've read that our cars don't like the Bosch plugs, that could be your problem right there.

    pull 'em and check the gap on them. it should be .060. you can get the little sparg plug tool at walmart and all the auto stores for like $2

    I'd replace the wires too, the stockers are now 10 years old!

    A set of MSD wires will run you 55 or so from the WS6 Store, that's where I got mine.
