If it started and ran before you replaced the parts then it is likely something you did is the problem. Go back over your work very closely.

Well I had a mechanic do it.. Bc it gave me a code to change the coils and plugs for cylinder 2

Probably not ECM failure. I'd replace all the plugs and recheck all your connections like Bob stated. You'll have to remove the upper intake to do so, there is a U2 video on how to do it. Get the upper intake gaskets too. Check all the vacuum lines to make sure they are hooked up correctly.
