About a week ago, i posted on here complaining of tranny/engine studdering during acceleration in my 2002 Vulcan, Simple as cheese fix...

Just replace the spark plugs!! LOL my car had the original spark plugs in it with 54K on them, no wonder the car wanted to die at idle with the AC on, and the engine was losing power because of misfires, i replaced the original motorcraft with autolite platinum plugs, they seem to be working GREAT! and i have no more problems with the car :banana: YAY!!!

Those factory(platinum) plugs are supposed to go for 100,000 miles. We all know that they should be changed by then, but I am surprised that the car would be almost undrivable at that low of miles. At 50,000 I would of changed them just to get better gas milage and to keep the performance up to par. I just hope it isn't masking another problem now.

The Car wasnt almost undriveable, it was far from it, but it was just an annoying problem when full throttle in the revs
