The spark plugs needed to be "gapped" properly - however, i'm guessing that there is some other issue occuring here causing the engine to run poorly. Testing needs to be done to determine what the cause of the problem is.

if you buy Motorcraft spark plugs at Autozone. you do not need to gap it is pre-gap. I did mine and I thought I need to gap it but i didn't. dont tighten the spark plugs so much. check the burn of plugs if its dark or burn you got issues
