Once the wires are back in the correct order it should be just fine. It might take a second or two to clear out.

I changed the plugs and wires plus ignition wire it was running off 2 cylinders before that but it was running know it won't start

Sounds like you may have put wires on incorrect. Anytime you make a condition worse with new parts,usually it's because you installed them wrong.Google the firing order for your vehicle,and recheck.

Car missing after spark plug change

If you have a repair manual for your car. Find out what the firing order is for that motor. than check it with the order your wires are in. You might have put the plug wires in the wrong order.If you don,t have a manual you can fine it on line or at your auto parts dealer. Hope that helps you

I changed plugs and wires on a 1991 celica gt. It started but runs pretty rough.

If it ran good before the tuneup then you may have crossed a plug wire, or bad gap or wrong gap on sparkplugs, check the firing order fisrt, hope this helps.

I changed the plugs and the car started skipping so i changed the plug wires and at first it didn't skip now it is, im thinking i either got the firing order wrong or the feul filter needs changing

If the car ran fine before you made repairs, then I would also assume that you have a plug wire on the wrong plug. If you cant locate the firing order, let me know, will be glad to send it to you.
