Ok, my car seems to "bog" down when i'm driving normally. Loses power, and even if I push the pedal to the floor, it doesn't help, and doesn't accl. I know that I have 2 cylinders misfiring, and 2 of my O2 sensors are bad. I also think I have a bad ground b/c my lights dim in and out when i'm sitting at a stop light, and I had the alternator checked, it was ok. So could any of these things be the problem? Or could it be something else?

sorry, its a 1997 not 2007

If you know that you have two cylinders misfiring and 2 bad o2 sensors,
need to start by fixing what you know is wrong at 1st

check spark plugs, wires and coil
replace if needed
check injectors
do a compression test
