Spark plug wire problem

Hey guys. So my car has been sputtering and it got to the point where the CEL came on. I looked under the hood and saw that a clip holding the wires broke. Therefore it looks as if one of the wires may have been burned and I am thinking that is why my car is sputtering like that. I have after market wires on there so I plan on putting my stock ones back on. Could the wire be the problem? And if so is there a diagram showing where all the clips to the wires are placed? Any help is appreciated

Sounds like you might be missing a clip . You can buy clips at auto zone .Yes that would do it if it got burnt.

Replaced the wires back to the oem ones.. There still is some sputtering. Could it be a fuel problem? Maybe spark plugs/coil pack?

When was the last time you changed your spark plugs? And fuel filter? And last time you ran some injector cleaner?

My fuel filter hasn't been changed. Looks like I found the problem. One of the oem wires had a bent "boot" (I guess you wanna call it) that went into the coil pack and left a gap. So it wasn't completely on hahah don't even know how I didn't notice that. Thanks for the help guys

may not have been a loose wire after all. Plugged my oem wires back into the screamin' demon coil pack and that's when it started to sputter. But runs fine with the stock coil pack. Doesn't make sense to me but it's all good! Thanks guys

Apparently you've got a bad coil pack sounds like
