DO YOU THINK ITS CATALYTIC CONVERTER OR IGNITION PROBLEM OR SENSORS OR FUEL FILTERS

was the car running before you changed the spark plugs and wires?

 

if so I would suspect the wires are routed wrong

 

let me know if it was running before the tune up. give me as much information as possible was it running before the tune up?

YES IT WAS RUNNING

ok so what I would do is check each wire from the coil and make sure it runs to the proper cylinder it sounds like you may have mixed up the spark plug wire routing

 

use the diagram I attached above so you know which cylinders are which and double check all the wires from the coils run to the corosponding cylinders

 

this is most often the problem when a vehicle wont run after changing wires
