The problem could be the overpriced crap plugs that were installed, sorry to say.

Check for vacuum leaks.

Because you are having a mechanical issue with your car, this would stay here...
Start a new thread on the headlights in the General section.
Then come back and edit the title for this one to reflect the current problem.
