    Wrong plugs = Misfire?

    I had my plugs changed at the stealership and when I was paying for it I noticed the form had plugs for a 2.5RS on it. The lady at the checkout said not to worry, as it was just a misprint. Well recently I had a check engine light from a cylinder 1 misfire. I was just wondering if the wrong plugs & gap would cause this? The car runs fine and hasn't thrown any other cels.

    It's possible......If I were you I'd take it back and insist on the right plugs. You paid them to do the job right, I'd make them give me what I'd paid for.

    Thats the rub, I already asked about what was listed on my invoice and they said it was just a misprint and I have the correct plugs. Is it worth it to pull one of the plugs to find out?

    Ahrg, this is precisely why I hate taking my car to the stealer. They always screw something up. Well, I'll ask them to look at it when I go in for the cruise control recal.
