hey everybody, my caddi devolped a engine miss when idleing in drive, after about 10-15 it smooths out, could this be plug wires because i replaced the spark plugs with bosch platinums.

The general consensus from the experts around here (Bbob and the like) is to use genuine AC Delco double platinum spark plugs. The Bosch plugs don't have the platinum on the ground and electrode. Now, this probably isn't causing the miss. The answers I've seen posted indicate wires, again the recommendation is to use AC Delco.

A mechanic friend of mine has nothing but bad to say about those Bosch plugs.... he rattles off story after story of failed replacements with them... Why take a chance on third party for something replaced every 100K miles? :)
