So I bought and replaced those, number 8 is not fun to replace by the way. Again it was running rough, I was almost about to give in and take it in, then I remembered I just put in around 10 or so gallons of gas and I tried one more quick fix, rubbing alcohol in the gas tank and low and behold I had water in my tank from a contaminated gas pump. So my point is that if you have problems that feels like a misfire or rough idling after refueling then try some rubbing alcohol and save yourself money and a weekend.
Thos asshats... I bet they charged over $4 a gallon too, just to ruin your engine!
