Take it back. The service facility messed up. If it ran before you took it there it should run now. Sounds like they forgot to plug in the control module(s). HTH. -Jim

The control module is what triggers the ignition coils to fire. Not exactly sure where it's located on your car but on my Grand Marquis, similar car, it's on top of the engine near the back of the engine compartment. HTH. -Jim

Sounds like a ground wasn't hooked back up or something didn't get plugged in.

It didn't shoot out of the coil, it sounds like the injectors are not seated properly.
