I have a 99.5 Jetta VR6 and just changed the plugs today. The old plugs were single electrode from the previous owner and I put in the NGK BKR5EKU dual electrode plugs in. I went to take the car for a ride after changing the plugs and it stalled right after I started it. Once I started it again it revved up and down for a minute before it started idling fine. After that the car ran good except for a backfire I heard one time shifting.
Before changing the plugs the car would rev itself sometimes when shifting from 1st to 2nd that problem is gone now though. Could it be the wires? Because one of the boots that holds the pull tab for the wire came out of the metal when I pulled the wires and I had to put it back in. Thanks for any help.
