First make sure your engine is running smooth when you can keep it running, if not, possibly the plug wires are put back on wrong, check firing order. if that is correct I would check to make sure that you have the right spark plugs, with the proper gap

Tune up

You need to study or research info on tune-ups
Basically it is a sales pitch, as only spark plugs are left
& tune-ups stopped 25 years ago from a technical perspective
Your not actually tuning anything
You replacing old spark plugs,gas & air filter etc,that has been
called preventative maintenance for over 20 years
For the last 30 years the vehicles Computer does all the
engine tuning

I have a 2006 Ford Freestar. My engine light is blinking and it wanted to stall for a moment. What could this be? A few months ago I took it in the shop and they said that it needed a tune up. So I had...

No such thing as a Tune-Up

Only Spark Plugs are left from a tune-up,
of 30 years ago

You have a check light on
Now -- they have been on all vehicles
for 30 years.
So I don't see where you shouldn't
know what to do

Check for codes
Diagnose OBD2 System with Malfunction
Repair as needed

2002 pontiac sun fire engine cuts out at 2000 RPM and stops when you accelerate no service engine light what could be the problem

Possibly a tune up including spark plugs, fuel filter, pcv valve, air filter, and an oil change. Do include the spark plug wires if it has them.
If all of that is fine, see if the spark plugs are covered in oil... that will also cause it to run bad but not necessarily throw the check engine light.
Good luck

Car jerks when slowing down or stopped, CEL on

You said it all. When a car jerks it means it is not firing as expected which could be due to fuel pressure not adequate, air intake not enough or too much, sparks not been produce at the right time or engine management problems (sensors etc). from what you said i would start with locating the source of the oil consumption. If there is visible oil around the engine, this might not be cause of the jerking. If the oil leaks is not visible it could be due to cylinder\piston wear. Dirty air filter, spark plugs, plugged fuel filter and bad spark plug cable could also cause jerking so you might want to consider giving your car a tune up also

1998 Acura. Wants to start. Replaced battery 6 months ago. Clicking,lights on dash flashing. Eventually it starts after quite a few tries 130.000 miles. I have never really had any maintenance done tune up...

do a tune up. replace the spark plugs, spark plug wires, air filter, pcv valve, clean up the throttle body plates, clean the mass air flow sensor that comes from the throttle body to the air filter assembly. Check your positive and negative battery cables. Make sure the cables are clean and tight on the battery and the grounds and also the starter relay on the starter as well.

1998 lincoln continental idles very rough

Has your engine gotten wet? Sounds like water around your spark plug boots down in the port around the spark plugs. If there is any water down there, make sure you blow it out with air compressor prior to removing plugs, or it will drain directly into the engine. Another scenario, could be EGR valve or related parts.  Is your check engine light on? With that rough of a ride, it should be. If it is an auto parts store should be able to read the code to help pin point the problem. Good Luck!

Won't start

The first thing i would do is put a new ignition control module on it. If that doesnt fix it, some of the newer model vehicles have made it so the power control module (pcm or brain) has to be reset everytime you change the battery. I hope that helps you out.
