I have just changed my spark plugs in my 08 V6 SR5 2WD Tundra. When I cranked it up, I cannot rev the engine to full capacity, and the traction control, check engine, VSC Off light was flashing. I am dumbfounded as to what to do?

I got the Iridium XP spark plugs from advance auto/autozone ( I cannot remember which )

Engine seems to run rough with a lot of shaking.

Help please?

id say:
1. are those oem plugs?? Does the Toyota engine not like non oem plugs?? When I had GM vehicles they didnt like anything but AC Delco in them.
2. Gap off?
3. Loose wire?

Update! Truck seems to have worked out the low throttle, but the problem of the vsc, check engine, and a/t light still persist.

Okay to drive? I have to be at work in 54 minutes?

Take the battery clamps off let it stay for a few minutes, attach them again and all lights shouldn't be illuminated anymore. It than is ok to drive..

Have taken clamps off the battery, will see if that works.

Why does the ECU freak out when we change the plugs?
