you may need to change your fuel filter sounds like you have water in the line. you can put some gas treatment or octane booster in the tank. but make sure that the new wires are in the right sequence for the firing order.

No injector pulse, no current to the injector


Check the pickup in the distributor as this is the cam sensor. The injectors run of the pulses created while the rotor is turning around. It should be a plastic disk located under the rotor button.
