I just had my spark plugs & wires changed today, along with a motor vac, new fuel filter and oil change.
When i picked up the car and drove it home it was still running rough. During a stop the car would alomst seem to "miss" or had a drop in RMP then jump back to above idle, then to ilde. is this the timing? I can't see if all the boots are on the plugs(just can't see them). The wires are all on the distriutor firmly. Any help would be a huge help as i'm starting to down on my car with temp. going up & my bank account going down.

On a unrelated topic i'm selling a '89 GMC jimmy
209km's, v6 auto, power, new gas tank today!!

Ryan I hoped you used the Ford AWSF34PP double platinums.
The wires are a b*tch to put on and it is quite possible one of the boots is not one tight especially the one underneath the A/C compressor. CHeck all the connections for your wiring including things around the throttle body like the Idle Air Control(IAC) and the TPS(throttle position sensor).
A possibility is when they did the motor vac if someone got into that throttle body with a brush to clean it they may have punctured the IAC diaphragm.
Also the Mass Air Flow may be screwed up with dirt or a bad connection or it's sucking air between the MAF and the throttle body.

Check to see if all your wires are firing. If not you might have a Dis problem.

tubing might not be tight enough. Especially the top one with the screw fitting.
