2001 3.8L v6

My problem, engine sputter and rough idle. 60k miles.
Changed plugs, wires, ran injector cleaner, no engine lights. Is worse on warm days.
any Ideas?

Re: 2001 3.8L v6

I use an electric solvent I get at work. Some guys use carb cleaner and I know one who swears by brake cleaner. I can't vouch for these, but they don't have any problems. I like mine because it is meant for that. I would think a parts store would have similar.
