There is one more thing about this. It shouldn't have anything to do with it, but the Service Tech also replaced the Noise Suppressor coming off of the Coil On Plug Packs. It is mounted next to the cams and is mounted on a short bracket. It has a grounding wire that attaches to the frame, next to the Strut Tower on the right side on the engine compartment. He found out that the ground wire was broken. It is a small black square box. For those of you having this issue, check that wire. Being a former mechanic in the military, I see no reason for this to cause any issue. But then again, I was working with 1950-1970 technology. This is 2005. Anyone have any ideas on this?
