Could be the valve adjustment needs to be done again. one or more of the rocker arms might have backed off/loosened up. hope this helps. good luck.

Does bad spark plugs burn gas faster


First question is yes bad or worn plugs can burn more gas to generate the same amount of power.
Second question, you could fill up the tank and record the mileage, then fill it up again when it measures half a tank and compare.
If the gas gauge is working correctly it should take half the total number of gallons the tank holds to fill it up again. And the miles you drove divided by the number of gallons used equals your gas mileage.

Can water in gas do alot to my truck and, does it run ruff?


It will not hurt the engine as long as it is clean water, muddy water will clog everything. You must drain the system and flush all water out ASAP.

I have a 97 grand am it running very ruff i put plugs , oxygen sensor and has real gas smell


If it has the 2.4l 4cyl "Twin Cam" you most likely need to replace the plastic housing that the ignition coils sit in. These develop hairline cracks and leak spark to the cam towers, which results in a nasty misfire.

Car shakes at stop signs, very poor gas mileage, and sputters whe


Try having your fuel injector cleaned, you can start with running fuel injector cleaner though your gas tank and if that does not help then you have to get it cleaned out professionally or even worst have the injector's replaced if they are bad.
The other thing that will give it bad fuel would be a bad air intake temperature sensor go bad, as for the ruff idle that is common to a dirty or stuck EGR valve.
Good luck and keep me posted, by the way, what kind of Garage did you take it too? And are there and DTC codes from the ECM?
