Hello--this one is a bit odd, hoping someone might have some insights. Last December I had my plugs, wires, and coils changed out on my '95 Riv 3800 SC, after a misfire under load was detected that was causing lurching and jumping at times when going up hill under light throttle (but the check engine light was never triggered). The tune-up cleared it up and she was running like a charm until about a week ago, when I started getting the up-hill lurching issue again (but much less frequently than before). Figured there might have already been a failure somewhere among the new wires or coils. But just yesterday when I went underhood and looked at the coils, I noticed dead bug body parts wedged between the coil-side boot of one of the ignition wires and a post of one of the coil pairs. So I popped that boot off the coil and cleared the bug parts out. Since I did that, the car seems to start much more briskly, and the engine seems to run a lot smoother and the trans seems nice and crisp in its shifts, and no sign thus far of the intermittent uphill lurching. So my question to the hivemind is: could dead bug parts be enough to divert some of the coil's current and cause intermittent misfires? Has anyone every heard of anything like this? Or is this just wishful thinking on my part? Right now I'm taking a "watchful waiting" approach over the next couple of days to see if there's any sign of the misfires returning.
