Icon5 My engine makes a sparking noise whenever I take off

Recently, my '95 auto 4-banger has been making a sparking noise whenever I take off from a complete stop. I've also noticed a very slight stutter in the take off as well, but both only happen when I come to a complete stop. What could this be?

My older brother told me it sounds like I need a set of new plug wires. Does that sound about right? I'm at 210,000 miles BTW.

With the engine off , take a small mirror and look at the inside top of the radiator shroud , above the fanblade and the ends of the fan itself .If it looks like the two have been touching examine the engine mounts . If one is broken / loose it will let the engine rise up from the frame on takeoff causing the fan to hit the shroud.
