Default Urgent: Car studder

I cleaned out all of the igntion wires that go to the ignition modules.. and
I cleaned the ignition module connecting parts where the wires plug into. I
changed the spark plugs (NGK Iridium). The studder is still there. Studder
on acceleration that is. Please advise. Thanks.

Tell me this... how does it run with the Motorcraft double plats it was
designed with/for?

You know, a lot of earlier fords did not take well to the Bosch Plats when
they came out. My SVO would start to have a no-load miss after using them
about a week.

Dont discount this weird effect.

What Transmission do you have?

*cry* I _had_ NGK Iridium plugs in it... I put in Bosch double plat. plugs
in b/c the O'Reilly sales droid recommended them. I also put dielectric
grease (aka spark plug boot grease??) in the boots on the driver's side 4
boots (experimenting). Should I clean that crap out of the boots as best as
I can??

Okay... if it DOEs seem to be an ignition problem... dont get freaking
confused.

Are you saying it's even worse? Or the same?


I doubt the problem is the dielectric grease unless it's contaminated,... but
it may be if it's cheap stuff. If contaminated you cant clean it up,
sufficiently

Quit trying to get better performance with the "magic plug"... my point about
the Bosch is that they were SH!t in my and several other fords I knew of.
Several people on here swore by them, but I tried them twice and removed a
third set from a car I bought, all because of missing. No other changes..
and problems went away

Your car came with Motorcraft Double Plats and that's what you need to go
back to... and maybe new wires/boots.

I just put in new wires/boots. I'll switch back to Ford Motorcraft double
plat's & see if that helps/fixes it. Thanks, BM.

I've heard that Bosch sucked & that Bosch was the way to go.... so I figured
I'd take a chance & see if they worked. I wasn't looking for any performance
increase at all... I was looking for stability. Obviously not to be found in
Bosch products for me.

I replaced the plugs with Ford Motorcraft OEM plugs (plat's)... stutter is
still there. Not as bad, but still there. I'm thinking the di-electric
grease screwed things... but I don't know, since the stutter was there
before the di-electric grease. Is there really any advantage to using MSD
ignition products over the stock versions?
