comment What would be the most likely cause of engine sputter?
+1 - Even though the OP found an alternate solution. Since the issue is intermittent, it's unlikely to be electrical, meaning it's likely fuel related. I definitely agree.

comment Stuttering Accord at Stop Lights
It's definitely the first thing I turn to when things stutter. I'd rather pay $2 for a squirt bottle than pay a mechanic $60 for them to use theirs. I also find that it commonly does find the problem.

comment Audio player doesn't read some songs
I can't say this is the wrong place to post this question, but you might get better results on Super User. I know MP3 is a codec that is fairly commonly supported, and being that MP3 isn't really a container (and therefore doesn't contain other codecs), if one works, they should all work. Someone on Super User might be able to help further, but it almost seems like there might be some corruption... Dirty disc, bad formatting, bad files, etc.

comment Wobbly Steering-wheel after changing Rims/Tires?
Agreed. I kinda figured the same thing, but forgot to mention it. No such thing as a Torx wrench.

comment Wobbly Steering-wheel after changing Rims/Tires?
@Lando Good to hear. A fast shake NORMALLY means something fairly minor. As Bob Cross mentioned, direction of rotation should be marked. If you don't find an issue with that, my first suggestion would be balancing.

comment What is the difference between normal, platinum, iridium plugs?
For the most part, Timo is correct, but I have a few disputes with his answer... 1) As Brian said, copper is a better conductor. 2) On an unmodified car that specifies normal plugs, platinum and iridium are excellent because though they are less conductive, they last MUCH longer. If you aren't looking for performance, and just want to worry less about changing out your plugs, iridium plugs can sometimes last over 100,000km. Many people don't even keep a vehicle that long. Provided you clean them up and gap them, they are fairly worry free parts.
