alright, i just put in new spark plugs about 4000 miles ago. i was chipped about 2000 miles ago. today, my car started misfiring and the CEL light came on. i limped it a block to work and let it sit for about 4 or 5 hours. 5 hours later, i got back in the car and drove it home (about 2 miles). the car felt fine, though the check engine light is still on. i didn't drive it hard, but it felt like it normally does. any ideas. i figure it might be spark plugs, coils or ignition control system. but im wondering if i should even bother with spark plugs since i replaced them so recently.

get a vag com from autozone, scan the codes (write them down), and clear the codes and see if they come back.

Ya before you even posted you should have the code scanned. In my case I scanned it when the same symptoms happened and it was my MAF (common problem, easy fix).
