Bad plugs would cause a miss and the engine would run rough.
Your check engine light would also be on and you would have codes for the missfires.

maybe you misplaced plug wires,you should only replace one plug at a time so you don't get them mixed up,you will need the firing numbers know to know where they are supposed to go

Why won't my car not turn over when I am trying to crank it?

check for spark from the spark plug wire pull the plug wire put a screw driver in the wire hold it by the plastic handel so the shaft of the screw driver is close but not touching a ground and watch for a spark be careful not to get shocked or see if the fuel pump is bad sometimes you can hit the gas tank with your hand while you turn the engine over you have to hit hard and fast while trying to start it this means the fuel pump is bad if it starts because it will stop again

Well the diesel effect is from the idle speed being too high or a buildup of carbon inside the engine acting as replacement spark plugs.
Can you use starting fluid to find out if the cutting out is from lack of fuel ?

It is running ruff, wants to cut off. Using more

Fuel pump in gas tank, more then likely not fuel pump, do fuel pressure test should have 13 -15 psi fuel pressure, Pull codes and data get reading out of M.A.P sensor this one at like a choke, also from C.T.S sensor also acts like a choke, check for a misfire 1st pull one spark plug wire at a time.the one that not fireing chould be a defective wire or bad cylinder compression ( do cylinder compression test ). Good luck,hope this was very helpful.

Hi there

This problem could be caused by the idling settings, if you know how to set your idling settings, turn it up a little bit, if you don't i would suggest that you take it to a workshop and ask them to turn the idling up, this shouldn't cost you too much money. Please also remember to give this solution a good rating.

Kind regards - Hope you solve this problem!
