Ok, car still at shop.. I replaced the plugs and wires AGAIN, the car idles better now but still has major issue when has is applied. It sputters horribly and makes popping sounds from under hood, with little back fire. When left alone it'll run, I let it sit and idle for over an hour yesterday, but soon as I put into gear BOOM it dies! I tested the fuel pump from the vacuum thing under the hood and the gas shoots out when the key is turned on. I'm stuck at this point.. So I'm leaving it at shop until they can hopefully find the problem.
