Hey there, been a long time since Ive been on this board =D good to see it is thriving.

Got a 98 catera with 96k miles

Any how, I had a bad oil leak going on and my car sat for about 3 months while I repaired her. after many rains, water had built up in a few of my spark plug wells. So I cleaned them out real well and replaced my plugs.

She Only starts misfiring after running about 10 min or when warm. I did get some wires today and will be trying them out.. but Ive been warned that the dis pack and coil are a common problem and The wires are probably fine.
Well is there any thing else i should be looking for?
Where would be the cheapest place to find the coil and dis pack?
Anyone got any tips on changing out the wires.. I have no Idea how to get my hands back there the frame of the car is in the way?

well first you should get diagnostics run on your car to see which cylinder(s) is/are misfiring. Then you should post the code on here so we can help you figure it out.
