After changing my plugs a few weeks ago, everything was fine and it pretty much still is but when I was putting the boots/coil packs (whatever they are called) back on I wasn't very pleased by how unsure it seemed on getting the boot attached to the plug, as if there wasn't enough room to push down on the boot for a click on to the plug. Does that make sense?

Maybe 2x the car on my way to work did a quick sputter for maybe 1 whole second then it went away. No CEL's or anything but I am now wondering if the during the install, one of the boots didn't get properly fitted on to the plug as there is no sure way to tell.

Thoughts?

Did you notice the same lack of room between the boot connecting and the pack bottoming out on the valve cover? Like one pack I literally put in by hand then tried to slap it down beacuse it didnt seem connected. Maybe it's just me.... *shrug*

If you had had a real misfire the check engine light would have illuminated and you'd have one of the P300-series DTCs.

As with other things in life, did you use dielectric grease on the boots to ease insertion?

So this is still going on but with another symptom.

I can hop in the car and start it up, and within the first mile I get a noticeable sputter or quick drop in power. Just yesterday I stopped by my home for a few minutes so when I got back in the car I fired it up and took off. And within 10 ft the car had about a 1/2 second drop in power and it was very noticeable, too.

One other thing I have noticed is that when turning right off my main road into my neighborhood, as soon as I swing right and push the gas to accelerate, there is a loss of power for a second, and it does this EVERY TIME. It's the only time I can for sure get it to replicate the symptom.

The car starts fine every time. Idles fine also. The only time I notice any of the symptoms is when I am driving.

No CEL's. Any ideas what I can check here ???

Are there any sensors that would cause this?

Another thing I have noticed is that when coasting in a downshifted state, it doesn't roll as smooth as if the compression isn't correct, you can feel it hanging up some which I think slows the car at an increased rate.

I'll just keep talking to myself, here....
