There is a fuse in the fuse box for that plug where Auto zone hooks up. I think its a little 15 amp (blue) but just look then all over. Then take it to them..

Going down the road car starts to skip running ruff then shut off had to be tow after couple hours car starts now running fine

If your check engine light is on take the car to an auto parts store like Advance or Auto Zone they can hook up a diagnostic reader for free and tell you what kind of trouble codes are stored in the car's computer. Sounds like you may have a vacuum leak or need to replace your mass air flow sensor.

Stop wasting time at auto zone and throwing parts at it. Find a good repair shop and have it properly diagnosed and repaired.
Have you ever had a spark plug fail in your lifetime?Probablely never will.
Do you know how to test a coil pack? Did you test it?

A simple check of vacuum hoses or a loose air filter cover,loose gas cap an so on ,could be your part of your problems. e.g. something simple.

I would recommend spending the big bucks and getting the shop manuals,for all your vehicles,something no one wants to do. Then study your vehicles systems and eventually ,you may be doing your own repairs.

Its a 2.2 ohv and it runs like it has a bad miss it idles funny and kinda bogs down when i hit the gas but once above 2000 rpms it runs decent until about 3800 rpms then it sometimes starts to backfire

You didnt say if the check engine light is on? Take it to auto zone or advance auto parts store and they will plug it into diagnostic computer and let you know what sensor is bad for free. My guess? manifold pressure sensor. Good luck, dont forget to rate

2005 Freestar there is an engine light on

This is most likely the Check Engine Lite, it means that there is a problem with the emission control system, go to a Kragen and have the system tested for trouble codes.
