It gave me a check engine light today, I'm going to get the code checked to see what the computer thinks the problem is.

Thanks for the information. Sounds like it's more likely that it's something besides the plugs but I won't rule them out completely. I'll also check the ECU and see if it's malfunctioning.

Some black and a little white on the ends. I'm not an expert when it comes to engines but my dad thought they looked to be of normal wear.

I'm noticing a little more of a trend with the problem. It seems as though it happens within the first mile and then it generally runs better, still feels heavy but it doesn't lose power. Doesn't seem dependent on the engine being warm or cold, it's happened both ways. Today I tried releasing the gas pedal and it seemed to recover faster.

Thanks for the suggestions. Mileage has been rough, it's cold where I'm at so in winter mileage tends to drop but it seems like it's lower than it should be. I checked the spark plugs and readjusted the gap but I didn't check the rest of the ignition components, so I'll check those out. I don't remember the last time the PCV value was changed, I'll check that too and see if it's getting worn out.

In-line 6. I haven't noticed any oil consumption, I'm about 1000 miles into this old change and it's still at the top.
