    ok did you set the plug gaps to correct gap with feeler gauge before installing them did you do one plug at a time to make sure the leads went back in the right plug if one lead is wrong or not on 100% this will make it run rough the only other thing timing might be out i am trying to help as much as i can without sounding lame or patranising now im wondering about what sort of points do these things run?

What would be the problem on a 98 dodge stratus code light was on ,then started to run rough then driving down the road it quit running. changed the fuel pump, oil around the piston rubbers changed &a

Joyce, you really should charge the battery first. It would be the only way you can tell us or a technician, what the status is. We can't wireless tap into your car to see what is wrong. you need the status and perhaps you even need a technician too.

1998 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE wont idle runs really rough

Look for a vacuum leak at the intake manifold. Spray (flammable) brake clean around the area while the engine is running and look for the idle to change. Also check for a vac leak at the brake booster by pinching the Vac supply line and see if the idle changes.

My truck wont go over 35

Could be a lot of things I would start here. If the engine is shaking at idle or not it maybe the spark plug wires. easy way to check start the truck take a spray bottle and spray a mist on the wires to see if the truck runs worst make sure you stand back while doing this so you don't get shocked.

Start up 1997 ford f150 4.6 liter runs rough and misses out,then oil gauge goes haywire. When it runs down then road after 10 minutes are so it then drives ok.

OK, if it is running rough, does the engine computer record any misfires on any specific cylinders? If so, then start changing parts in that area such as plug wires, plugs, and fuel inj. if this applies.

Hope this helps.
