I've got the 97 with 2.5 in it, just got off the phone with advanced auto parts and they said the wires I just bought when I did my plugs are the shit one so I'm going to take them back and try a set of better quality ones. And which plugs would cause this issue too? Because both plugs and wires were put in at the same time as the lights, so either one could be the issue..

Better quality ignition wiring is hard to find at an auto parts store, they normally go for the cheap so-called "low resistance" or so-called "high performance" ignition wire sets which are neither of those. If you can find a major brand like AC-Delco to exchange with what you bought, or at least avoid those ignition wiring sets that claim low-resistance or high performance you'll be much better off.

And so long as you stick with standard 'resistor' spark plugs like the Autolite AP985, Champion 3034, etc. you'll be fine and noise-free when you combine those with a standard ignition wiring set.

Just make sure to avoid anything that claims low or no resistance which, I know, sounds counter-intuitive but trust me, that's the way to go. Low or no resistance ignition parts cause static and other types of ignition problems. Resistance is purposely added at extra cost to quality ignition wiring & spark plugs to eliminate static, noise, or problems with the engine computer.

When you have a choice, buy American.
