When the brakes are applied, it'd sort of give the same feeling, but it'd be real apparent that it's modulating the brakes because of the rumbling of the ABS equipment. It's possible it may be something in the transmission. Have you pulled the codes from the vehicle?

DID YOU THROW AWAY THE OLD PLUGS???

They are platinum tipped, and should last forever. Just re gap them, clean em up a little and theyll be as good as new. They should last the life of the car.

i kept them... but 2 of them have cracks in the ceramic on the necks with burn marks around the cracks. so Im guessing those two are no good.

autolite copper clugs for 3 reasons: one they will work with the car, 2, they were cheap and i was short on cash today when the car started stalling from the bad plugs, and 3, i run them in everyhting and never had a problem with them.

I wonder if the constant use of traction control somehow overloaded the brakes and caused the engine to start cutting fuel. And somehow the lack of fuel caused the spark plugs to overheat and fail? That's interesting...sounds like severe damage to them if the insulators were cracked! Good call on replacing them. Elwesso's right -- they're platinum and should last essentially the life of the car. Mine are almost 112k miles old and the thing still lays waste to anything short of newer V8 Mustangs and Camaros.

Speaking of which, I saw some ghettoed out '96 Mustang today...V6 model. Had the Altezza something taillights and wheels. His license plate said XTREM96. After I wasted him from one stoplight, I wanted to roll down my window and ask if that stood for "extremely slow 96". :D

Why not? I have a severe phobia with people doing something to my car. It's not a very big area here and I have a personalized tag also, so the car is easy to spot. If he got really pissed off, he could do damage to the car, so I try to never offend anyone. Sure, I could go back and press charges after damage was done, but I think it's a lot easier to never get in hot water to begin with. :p
