Is the starting problem only after it sets? Typical of a bad fuel pump not holding pressure in the lines.
Trun the key to the on position and let the pump run, shut the key off for 5 secs and back to on until pumps stops again. Do theis 3-4 times and then crank. Does it start right up now?
As far as I know the 2004 3.4 motor is 36,000 mile warranty.
A fuel filter and an air induction service cetainly would be smart, but I highly doubt the wires or the plugs are bad. The plugs are double platinum and I see these going 100,000 like they claim.
If you are question a plug or wire, you can swap them to a different cylinder and see if the miss moves.
I am more curious as to the test I suggested.
