SOURCE: rotten egg smell after new plugs and wires seems to miss now

did he gap the plugs properly? sulfur smell comes from excess fuel being dumped into the exhaust (catalytic converter). Could be the coil, or improperly gapped plugs. If the wires were out of order, there would be a misfire.

SOURCE: 1998 Sebring cranks and fires but won't start?

I would put three cans of dry gas in the fuel tank. Let it sit for a few and then crank it over. The other issue may be that the fuel filter needs to be changed.

SOURCE: Car engine misses.

replace the coil with a Honda coil. never buy after-market ignition parts with Honda's always buy genuine Honda parts. not only will it work better...but its actually cheaper in some they have a much better warranty than most auto parts stores. this rule applies to Honda's and Toyota's Ignition system parts. I had similar issues with my old 1989 Honda accord. As an added measure apply "Di-Electric Grease" into all spark plug wire boots to help seal out any moisture (both plug ends and distributor ends). hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2000Cougar missing

I had a very similar problem and there is actually a recall for the fuel delivery module for the Cougar. If this is your problem take it to Ford to get it fixed immediately. The car will just stop running all together once it clogs.

You should check the engine coolant temprature sensor (ECT).

2006 ford Taurus I change spark plugs and wires and coil packs but it is missing real bad and u can smell gas it runs real rough

I had a similar sounding problem on my old 1993 Lexus. In my case it was the car's computer. The capacitors on the circuit board went bad and it caused the fuel injectors to be constantly open. This flooded the engine. It would run, but very badly and it blew a lot of white smoke out the back. I replaced the capacitors and the problem went away.

If the sputter got real bad, I could smell what smelled like weed eater gas inside the cabin. As you could also imagine, there is a loss of power.

Misses, exhast smell while running,took sensers off still runs and misses

Sounds like you may have a fouled plug or bad plug wire. It's not firing on that particular cylinder to combust the gas and that may be where you are smelling the exhaust smell.
