interesting story..today a coworker with a mitsubishi comes to me an says his car is runnin bad..we jump in to take a ride and it's runnin so bad at idle and part throttle that it feels like its runnin on 2 cylinders and the check engine light on. So we run to Kragens where we pickup plugs (Ngk's), new airfilter and tb cleaner/solvent. So I pull the old plugs..Bosch Platinums, but they don't look bad... I replaced them and had him start the car (wanted to do step by step changes to see what is causing the problems), well the car starts and idles smoothly, no stumbling whatsoever, my coworker thought I was a miracle worker. I proceeded to change air filter and thoroughly cleaned tb. I disconnected the battery to reset the code...now he's a happy camper..
