CYLINDER 1&3 NOT FIRING

(1999 Ford Escort)
in Tacoma, WA on July 21, 2010
Didn't pass emissions test today. Paper states cylinders 1&3 are not firing. Will a tune-up fix that problem? I had my brother do new wires and plugs not to long ago. Admittedly it does not have it's normal power ever since.
