Default Missfire

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.
