Its an inexpensive procedure and should be done at 60K miles anyway; btw mine was at 40-50K...
Just floor it everyday and keep em clean
This morning, I got no stutter at all on the way to work. So it may be the injector(*).

So you're suggesting I try flooring it first? If not, then try getting the injectors cleaned? Then if that doesn't work do the plugs and wires?

At this point, I would just get the injectors cleaned...its less costly than chaning the plugs and wires (if you have someone else do it).

No I would most definately NOT suggest flooring it if you are having problems. Once the issues are fixed then you can keep the plugs clean and the injectors clean by an occasional romp on it. But please, get your problems fixed first.
