A few codes came up.. bank sensor (1) And warm up catylast and cyclinder 2 misfire.. I put a brand new o2 sensor on it.. bank 1.. then put new spark plug wires not the coil packs just the wires.. and brand new spark plugs.. bought some mass air flow cleaner and cleaned the sensor off in the intake.. Still misses really bad.. Like only when you give more than a little before half way throttle on the petal.. starts missing really bad in every... single... gear... Don't know what else to do.. someone please help!!!!

I do not think the misfire is related to the repair. You could take a trouble light and look/feel around under the hood to see if a vacuum line is not plugged in or a wire connector has been left unhooked or loose. Then I would try and find a good fuel system cleaner (I recommend Chevron Techron) and run a tank of gas through to see if you are just dealing with dirty fuel injectors.

Service engine soon light blinking /car backfiring and missing

If your check engine light is blinking, you can take your car to Autozone, Advanced Auto or other parts house and ask them to get the engine codes. This ios a FREE service. It sounds like your camshaft positioning sensor, Cam Positioning sensor is bad. This is how comuterized systems tell where the cam and crackshaft are to set the timing. It sounds like you have timing issues.

ok the lights on the dash come on when the censors put out a code some vehicals have them when the gas tank isnt properly sealed (gas cap left off when started) but what you can do is take it to a aoutozone or advanced aouto parts and the can get the codes your car is putting out and tell you what the problem is may be a censor gone bad.Hope this helps, good luck
