Since you got a tune-up , did you get the plug
wires replaced as well ? Did you ask for resistor
plugs ?  It could be as simple as a loose or
damaged spark plug wire.

Open spk wire.

If u all ready check that every thing is connected.  Then, when they pulled off the plug boot of the sparkplugs they probably broke a wire.

I recommend:

CN-25 8.8mm wires...
Email them for the proper pn for ur car.
There not inexpensive!, and u have to mail order them.
No substitutions!!!
