Try a new fuel filter. Same thing happened to an Isuzu Imark I owned.

maybe its just cold , my ga16i misfires but as soon as it warms the studder goes away
sounds like what my parent's neon just went thru.. in which case.. they got another car.. kidding hehe

how up to date are you on the maintenance items? plug and wires.. that sorta thing.. whens the last time you had it timed properly? id start with things like this first.. cetch up on your maintenance if your ot already.. if it fixes the problem.. consider yourself warned about lagging on maintenance.. as the results can be much worst at times (think timing belt whoopsee)

Always start with a good tune up you will be amazed at what a good tune up will do can actually make a non running car run again in some cases. Glad to hear the problem is fixed

its fairly easy i would say around a 2 or 3 the fuel filter is on the firewall so its easy to get to. the only problem is the hoses are a pain to get off cuz the fuel filter has a lip on each spout but other than that easy change

get ngk next time you change them... it wont ruin you/ car if you keep them a while but performance wise the ngk will be better (perfo=perfo and economy)
