Sounds like it could be a plug wire off, a bad plug wire, or even a bad plug. I would change the plugs out and see how that works. It could be other things but I would start with the plugs first but check the wires also.

Loss of power in acceleration

I would check the fuel pressure first.
If the engine was miss-firing the check engine light should be on.

Just had sparkplugs and wires replaced. Check car still shudder

I was factory trained to work on these cars, the problems i found for this symptom where this, a cracked air intake rubber flex hose, crack is on bottom and opens up when u accelerate, next is a defective MAF, which is a Mass Airflow sensor, neither of these two problems will set a code.

'06 pt cruiser shudders when stopped

Check to see if theres a recall on the engine mounts on your vehicle. It's very unusual they need to be replaced after 3 yrs. They should last the life of the vehicle UNLESS it was in deep water or is in extreme cold or hot temperatures.
