there are no extremes as it relates to temperature. the climate is tropical (jamaican climate)

you might want to have the dealership take a look at spark plugs could have been gapped wrong also you injectors might need to be cleaned

Throw us a bone here.

How many miles on the rig?

Last maintenance done? Include all services done.

Check engine Light on? If so the code.

I can't really help you until we know these things.

Check engine light is a good start. Def let us know what the code is.

My guess is with new spark plugs they may not be gapped properly or are not the correct ones that are needed for the engine. Of course I could be wrong.

My car did that when it sucked water in the intake. At least that's what I assume. Only happened when it rained and I drove through even the slightest amount of standing water. I had a short ram intake on it, and could duplicate the symptom when I poured Seafoam cleaner into the intake while the engine was running. I switched back to the stock intake and the problem disappeared. Until my wife went to go to school after it had been very humid for a few days and the car hadn't been driven. She drove to 2 miles or so back, and when I took it back out right after that it ran fine.

So maybe make sure the intake is dry. My CEL came on during that as well. It flashed while the engine was stuttering, and went off when I drove it (and the engine ran fine). It also came on every time before when it stuttered in the rain/standing water. Not sure what the code was though as the light never stayed on long enough to read it.

I just had another thought.

Did this start happening right after the plugs were replaced?

If so check the electrical connections on the coil packs.

You got an ignition problem. Check the coil pack, plug wires, plug gap. Make sure the plugs are torqued correctly. Make sure there are no hairline cracks in the coil packs. Condensation can collect and cause a misfire. Sounds like the $tealer fucked up your ride dude.
