Missing under load can be caused by a number of different things including:
a bad sparkplug
bad ignition wires
if your car is old enough,
bad distributor cap

Also, it's possible it's missing all the time, and you only notice it under load. If so, then add
bad valve
bad piston or rings
blown head gasket

Check compression in number three. You could have bought a bad engine. And yes. You need to change every sensor. If they don't match with the plugs. replace the engine. There is a reason for different engine codes. You should have stuck with them.

Try stopping on a steep incline--does the heater stay warm? If yes, what you have is an air bubble that hangs at the heater hose until pressure from the water pump blows thru it as the engine speeds up. Park on an incline, open the radiator cap, run the engine until the thermostat is open, and fill the radiator to the neck. Wait until the level stops dropping and make sure bubbles don't continue to come up. If they do, you may have a blown head gasket that will keep forming these bubbles until you change the gasket. Please let me know the outcome, as we are getting a lot of these cases and are trying to improve the answers.

Engine seems to be missing


it sounds right, it is called a light load miss. it occurs mostly at 45-50 mph on slight incline and it feels like a bucking or hesitation. It commonly ocurs when there is carbon tracking on a spark plug porcelin (sp) . note . if the porcelin has carbon tracking so does the plug wire boot. the spark will travel through the carbon track in teh boot after plug replacement causing premature failure of the plug. it is a good idea to replace plugs and wires if this is the cause of your miss.
