2005 Buick Rainier Question: Sensor reset

 

Question

Visitor, 4.2L 6 Cylinder, Oklahoma City, OK, January 01, 2011, 09:39

I just changed the spark plugs on the vehicle and now the car wont stay running its sounds like it is knocking then dies. The only way i can get it to stay running for more then a few seconds is by pressing the gas but even then it will slowly rev down and die. Do I need to reset the sensors?
