SUPREME CAR SHAKES WHEN ACCELERATING

1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 75,000 miles

1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme mileage: 75,000. I recently changed spark plugs and wires on my car and now the car shakes slightly when accelerating. I changed each wire one at a time, so I'm sure I didn't cross a wire. It turns over and idles great. Poor acceleration and sputtering is my problem. I put the old wires back on, but no change. I also checked for something else I could have disconnected while working but I don't see anything. I have no clue what I did wrong.

You may have cracked a spark plug during the install or possibly, you picked up some grease on the end of a plug while you were doing the install. Also, check the spark plug gap.
