I would ask if they did either one. It just seems odd to me that you brought the car there to diagnose a misfire problem, and they just threw plugs and wires at it, and they don't know which cylinder is misfiring.

Keep us posted on what you find out, I realize you weren't there at the dealer. It just bugs me when I read stuff like this, and it'* why I'll always avoid going to the dealer.

I have worked at dealership and chain repair shops and independnts. It depends on the mechanic. I am honest but a lot of mechanic are not they only see the $. They dont care about the customer. I only tell the customer what broke or what the manufacters say should be done i dont come up with nosence crap. You just gotta try to find one that good and at least somewhat honest.

its unfortunate the dealers used to be be the ones you could count on, but now i never take my car anywhere. if i absolutely need to take my car in i will pass a half a dozen dealers to get to a locally owned shop. i even had a fight with the manager of the service dept of the dealer i bought my last dodge from, i wanted them to check the tires and they said ok at the desk. on the way home the tire was flat. the manager said "these guys work on flat rate they dont have time to fool with things like that". i never bought another car from them.
