Had the same problem. Replaced plugs, wires and coil pack. Turns out it was all a waste. The spark plugs were not gapped properly. Re-gapped spark plugs and now it runs better than ever! Try this before doing anything else and save alot of $$$!

There could be several possibilities, but the first thing to do is have the codes read out. You may have a local parts store like Autozone that might read them for free. If you can get the codes and post them here, we can get you a more definitive answer.
