Are you sure the wires are on correctly on the distributor cap? If it ran fine before you replaced the wires and doesn't after you replaced the wires than it has to be something you did with the wires?

I have 1998 vw cabrio just did a tune up runs great in idle put in drive car dies at 20mph can get car to 45 mph but very slowly why?


sounds like either the spark plugs weren't gapped right or the wires are in the wrong locations.
Google search the firing order and check the wires/loactions first, then if they are correct, have a look at the spark plug gaps.

Tune up 1988 Lincoln Towncar


you need: spark plugs, spark plug wires, depending on if newer system that is all. if it is older you will also need rotor cap and rotor button. label the plug wires and change one plug and corosponding wire at a time after changing the (cap and button).make shure the plug wires go on the new cap in the same order that they came off.

NEED STEP BY STEP ON HOW TO DO TUNE UP PLZ


So depending on Engine size, you either have 6 spark plugs or 8. The 6 cylinder doesn't have a cap and rotor, so just plugs and wires. The plugs are a 5/8 or 16mm socket. It is a special socket that has a rubber cushion to try and not break the plugs when removing or installing them. Regardless of 6 or 8 cylinder, you want the car to be cold for this. You grab one spark plug wire at a time, twist it back and forth, and pull straight away from the spark plug. Sometimes this is easier said than done. You want to purchase new plugs and wires, and if your car has a cap and rotor, you will want to get those too. I recall the '93 Z28 has a very expensive distributor cap, over $200 so maybe don't change that. The better brand of plugs come pre gapped. AC Delco is a great brand for Chevy. You want to put antiseize on the threads. Unscrew the old one, then install the new one. My favorite tool when doing this is a 6" wobble extension, as it seems to help with most plugs. You can take a piece of vacuum tubing 1/8" and stick it on the tip of the plug to help install the plugs without stripping out the threads in the engine cylinder head. You can remove one spark plug wire at a time and line it up for length with the new one in the set you purchased. Put Dielectric grease in the boot that goes on the spark plug end. Don't put it on the other side (Coil or distributor cap). Although there are many filters that can be involved in a tune up depending on the mileage of the vehicle, the biggest difference in how a car runs typically is spark plugs.

I did a tune up on my 94 Chevy suburban 1500 4x4 and it runs so bad and and dies now and when I put any kind of pressure on the gas it chugs and sometimes dies, and I'm sucking down fuel. It ran good...


With the information given it is kind of hard to make a correct diagnosis, but I believe I would look at the correct firing order. If it ran ok before the tune-up and runs worst now it sounds as if you might have gotten a few of the wires in the wrong place.
You will want to start out by removing your number one spark plug and either hook up a remote start switch or have someone help you turn the engine over while you put a finger over the spark plug hole in the head. Just bump the key over little by little until you feel air being pushed out of the plug hole and stop when the engine's timing mark lines up with top dead center. If you pop your distributor cap the rotor will be pointing at your number one plug position of the cap. Start there with the number one plug wire and work your way around clock wise in the firing order of 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2 If having the wires in the wrong order is your problem, this should get you sorted out.

Van running like its missing


the problem is not in the plugs , wires , cap , rotor but in dirty injectors or injector controls and wires
use a quality injector cleaner for a few tanks of fuel
ECM controlled cars do not a tune up as the computer does that 60 times a minute so all you need to do is to run the fault codes and fix the faulty sensors
fault codes are being recorded all the time and only the serious engine or transmission faults put the engine light on

How do I do a tune-up on my jeep cherokee


REPLACE THE PLUGS, WIRES, AND DISTRIBUTOR AND ROTOR CAP! THE WIRES ARE VERY IMPORTANT THEY ARE IN CORRECT ORDER! IT IS BEST TO REPLACE THEM ONE AT A TIME TO INSURE THE FIRING ORDER IS CORRECT! THE BEST WAY IS TO RAISE THE CAP, PUT THE NEW ONE ON THE JEEP, AND ONE BY ONE, WATCH THE LOCATION OF THE WIRE YOU TAKE OFF, AND PLACE IT IN THE SAME LOCATION ON THE NEW DISTRIBUTOR CAP! THEN ONE BY ONE, REMOVE THE WIRE FROM THE PLUG, REPLACE THE PLUG, AND PUT THE WIRE BACK ONTO THE PLUG! NOW YOUR READY FOR THE WIRES! WHEN YOU REPLACE THEM, DO IT ONE AT A TIME! WHEN YOU TAKE IT OFF THE PLUG, PUT THE NEW WIRE ON THE PLUG, THEN TRACE THE WIRE TO THE DISTRIBUTOR CAP, REMOVE IT AND INSTALL THE NEW WIRE IN ITS PLACE! THIS WILL ENSURE YOU HAVE IT BACK THE SAME WAY THE OLD ONES COME OFF!
