I replaced the Spark Plug Wiring and spark plugs after the dealer diagnosed as wire # 3 & # 5 were bad. and the spark plugs were bad. I bought the complete set of wires and new spark plugs at parts store and replaced both spark plugs and wires. After starting the car, it missed and the engine light came on. I am puzzled.

    I would contact your local dealership again. There was recently a notification sent (January 2011) regarding spark plugs wires and spark plus on the Torrent. I dont believe it is a recall. The service manager at our dealership called it something else. Basically the wires/plugs are bad and may have to be replaced more often. And they extended the warranty on the wires/plugs to 120,000 miles or 10 years. We have a 2009, so not sure if this also applies to the 2008.
