they only did the plugs coil pack and wires then fuel injector cleaner.

Maybe they got a bad coil?

Have had that happen. Just cuz its new doesn't always mean its a good part. More so with non factory parts

we put the old one back on and it still missed and spurted.

oh. shut, we pulled the new plugs out and the #4 plug was black. it wasn't burnt but that was the only plug like that.

Sounds like #4 has the misfire. It was running fine before the work was done?

It just ran like it needed a tune up. that's all.

could it be the new plugs?

Doubt it. A injector could have some junk in it since you ran the cleaner through it. Maybe the fuel filter is nasty and stuff from it made its way up to a injector

They cleaned the injectors and it still was doing it. not running right. I'm taking it to another shop monday.. Its just strange. thats the only thing left to change is the fuel filter.

Take it to the dealer. Its a little more money but they will fix it right
