Hello, thanks for posting

Does the engine idle normally? Is the check engine light staying on?

Please list the items that were replaced during the tune up.

The fuel filter is located near the firewall on the driver's side by the air filter.

Thanks, ***** *****'t see spark plugs mentioned, are they new?

I believe the ignition coil is located inside the distributor on this engine, these can cause problems due to dracks or high voltage leaks to ground try a new coil.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I replaced them
Expert:  Ted Ritter replied 3 months ago.

You replaced the coil too?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
not the coil

Ok, thanks, ***** ***** like it's something electrical breaking down, the coils are known to cause problems.
