You probably just have to tighten up your cloits.

When you say leads I assume you mean spark plug wires? Also, did you replace the distributor cap & rotor while you were at it? That is a common fault for misfiring conditions.

Also, your "my clutch to my transmitition" has nothing to do with the ignition system. :P

After you check the cap + rotor might want to check the Air and Fuel filter if it is external from the TANK the Air filter can cause that problem if it is clogged up hold the air filter up to the SUN if you can see light it is ok if not then replace it.

I had a 92 caviler that had the same problem found it was the timing belt had slipped and was causing poor acceleration and sputters.
