The 97 Continental uses a 4.6 liter DOHC 32 valve V-8. It does not have plug wires, but has coils on the spark plugs. Did you replace all the coils? Did you check the electrical connections at the coils and it the fuel injectors. If it ran fine before repairing the power steering maybe you disturbed some wiring or left some unhooked.
