Have only had my STS about two weeks, about a week ago started to have problems with the way the car ran,,,miss firing, surging, CODES about the engine,,,codes about the suspension,,,it got so bad one night that I had to pull the car over into a parking lot,,when I opened the hood I heard the all to familar cracking of a bad/loose plug wires,,,found two on the front of the engine sending voltage to the block and some more bad ones at the back of the coil pack sending voltage to somewhere,,,moved the wires around enough to get home with no more problems,,changed the wires the next day and have had "NO" problems since then....Why are the wires only 7MM ??????

Did you reaplce your plugs also?? Plug wires are very important to replace EVERY time......
