Shouldn't this be in 92-99? Please don't post mechanical problems in General Chat.

You mean bad PLUG? Not bad lug? Replace them and your wires. Check your coils. Pull your plugs and inspect them. Basic stuff here.

Oil leak? Clean the engine very well and watch for it.

Nope., i will do this after cchruch. Let me say that last sunday, i was on my way to zion and its 40min frm my huse. i already had a bad catalytic converter and an exhaust leak. The whole eshaust needed replacing but i dtill went up there. i decided that i wantted to see how fast the car will go even though it was running load. Next thing i know, the car starts shaking and losing power. When i exited the expressway the car ran really sluggish and lugging bad like it is now. I thought it was just becasue i was running it hard. well to fast foward to friday, i finally got the exhaust taken care of and i have a small cat on it. The car is quiet but the miss is still there. I will pull the codes later. i wish i never hit oit on the expressway then i probably wouldnt be going through this crap now.
