Wow, thank you for the very helpful insights. Yes, 70F100, the engine compartment is darn near showroom. And I swear the stutter is getting less frequent and less severe. Is it possible that if they got water down in there it will just evaporate off and nothing else will be needed?

Been out of town and away from computer and vehicle for three days but will check hoses and manifolds above heads for drips this evening.

$10k is more than I paid for the vehicle, so as awesome as that scanner may be, I wouldn't say it's exactly a viable solution.

Finally, even assuming this has something to do with water intrusion and further assuming the symptoms clear up on their own--are you all saying I should go ahead and change the plugs based on mileage alone? Sounds like that's kind of difficult and delicate process--would you recommend taking it to a dealer for that, as opposed to an independent shop?

You could check with the seller to see if they've already been changed. Not everyone waits the full 100K miles before changing them. Considering the difficulty in changing them, I for one would rather make that phone call first.

I bought from a small-time dealer, not the owner. But the previous (and original, according to Carfax) owner was allegedly an acquaintance of the dealer. Trying to get the dealer to put me in touch with the owner, but don't have the highest of hopes.

The owner might not be receptive to that, but the dealer could always ask the question for you and let you know the answer.

I would go ahead and pull a plug or 2 and see how they look. They tend to break less when the engine is hot. You dont want to keep driving it with it skipping
