Acceleration problem

Could be a clogged fuel filter, could also be a slight crack in the throttle body gasket. get a spray bottle with water in it, set it to mist, while the vehicle idles, spray around the base of the throttle body, if it bogs down replace the throttle body gasket. Just curious, was it doing it before you changed the plugs and wires? If not make sure you have the firing order correct.

Lincoln Navigator chugs/misses during acceleration. It has been an intermittent problem, but is getting worse. If I maintain speed, the car ruins ok, but when I go to accelerate it lurches/chugs/misses.

I guess the question would be,do you ever have it
worked on, or just drive until it acts up,you can't live
in the 1960's with todays technology

You need to do spark plugs every 3 years
Look at data with professional tools a couple
times a year

Oxygen sensors get replaced on all vehicles
at 100,000 miles

I could list 10 more items for a start

The fact is people just don't ever do anything
but drive vehicle,peroid & when they do act up
continue to drive them,no testing,no road tests,
no real knowledge of how to deal with repair shop
& such.

It just need some attention,maybe new spark plugs,
a couple O2 Sensors,a couple ignition coils,all things
you can do yourself IF you wanted to learn the technology
It's all there on the internet

Rough running on acceleration all the time back fires and misses choking

Have the car scanned for diagnostic trouble codes " DTL's ". That should give you a starting point

My 97 Outback has a miss at idle, at upper RPMs it seems to fire on all cylinders. The CEL is flashing. Today when I was driving it lost power on acceleration, limping along. The car never died. Once I...

If the light is flashing it means the engine has a misfire that can damage your catalytic convertor which is very expensive. A tuneup might be in order if its never been done, but I have personally seen many bad timing belts and fuel pumps that have gone bad on those vehicles also.
