So I just got 6 new spark plugs put into my car. Ever since then whenever I give the car a litttle extra prusser on the gas pedal it has issues while the RPMs are going up. Feels like the car is struggling to speed up.
Do you

This only started happening after the new spark plugs were installed? Did you use the correct spark plugs? Where applicable, what about the plug wires?

The basics for a problem under load is to check for a blockage of some kind, fuel--air--exhaust. How long since overall tune-up? Can you check for applicable trouble codes? Some of the national brand auto stores will check for free, if there are any?
