Car is cutting out mainly notice at stop light or when in drive thru. Check engine light is not on. RPM's do not change and the care does not die. Has happened after driving a short while and after been driving for awhile. Usually misses like once, but has done it 3 times in a row a few times.

Mechanics told me that they checked the spark plugs (they are a little worn) and they need to be changed, but people have told me it is more than the spark plugs.

I just changed the fuel filter.

I agree if the plugs are a little worn, that isn't the problem. Have you checked for vacuum leaks? Also, make sure the catylatic converter isn't starting to plug. If all appears good, you may want to check fuel pump pressure.

Let me know what you find.

Took my car into today--while they changed the plugs--found a wire that was burnt also, they changed the plugs and wires.
