system check

went to autozone and they said it got a loose gas cap hit and a number 3 cylinder missfire. i went ahead and replaced the plugs wich helped but still has a shudder/shake on accelleration.

There's a good chance it's a bad spark plug wire on cylinder 3. If you can change the spark plugs you can change the spark plug wires. But if you are unsure you might as well get a shop to check it out for you.

Let us know what happens.

wires

i thought about that but autozone wanted $40 for them. and if it ends up being a coil or a fuel filter or something like that taking the care in now might just be the smartest thing.
