Did you replace the plug wires too?
What kind of spark plugs?
Have you had the CEL scanned?
Which codes are you getting?

Bosch Platinum +4 plugs work great! But yeah make sure you either test your plug wires with an ohm meter or just replace them

NGK plugs, the simple/cheap green ones.

 

I've purchased more cars that run like crap due to Bosch Platinums that I should send Bosch a finders fee.

 

And OEM plug wires.

 

It's an old song, but a true song.
