Jw My car has some brand stainless headers (I think there ebay headers) The spark plugs sit right on the headers and have started to burn into them, not much but a little. Could this cause the car to have a missfire every once in awhil while cruising.

The strange thing is as soon as you give it gas it clears up. Jw if the spark could jump like that.

I know I burnt a wire a little bit and it was causing my car to miss. They make "socks" that you can put over the wires to protect them. If I burn through another one, I'm buying those.

Really I'll have to look into those socks.

I was told even burnt into them just a little can cause a miss. I'll have to check it out.
