what kind of speed does it get up to?

did you replace the wires when you did the plugs? what plugs did you use? what filter, fuel or air?

the more information you provide us with, the more you will get out of us

although its in the topic title, put your year and trim in your signature

What they are saying is that you need to provide us with as much information as is possible in order for us to be able to help you. We will need to know as much pertinent information as you can provide (see some of the questions above).

Some other questions to answer:

Did this happen all of a sudden, or has it been gradually getting worse?
Was it present before you had the plugs changed, or did you change plugs in an attempt to cure the problem?
Is your car WHITE? (Just kidding on that one!)
