Could be a bad crankshaft position sensor also. Heat and a starter Restatt could cause a faulty reading for the computer.

Dnt forget new oil change during spark plug change also check cap on spark plug ask local store for recommended cap space on spark plug,the best oil quality available along with oil filter and if u want buy slick50 when changing oil, 10% slick50 and 90% oil..... Do not buy anything cheap... Always buy original or the next best thing available always ask.good luck N keep us posted if do so...

Plug boot, spark plug, coil on plug most likely the cause. If it continues after replacing the parts I would suspect fuel injectors, but 2 of them causing a problem at the same time is unlikely.
