if all was done well..then look for a vacuum leak next..


If was not shaking before installing plugs may want to remove plugs again and check for prong to spark plug may have gotten bent or picked up some dirt between electrode and prong. Also make sure plug wires are fully seated in to make contact with plug.


Could have a vacuum leak or you may have bad motor mounts

Chances are likely bad motor mount or mounts. If one is bad and not replaced soon it will cause other to fail shortly after.

Check youre drive belt
