My monte is shaking under acceleration and idiling very low while in park and at stop lights (almost stalls). It smells horrible. Sulfur and ammonia combined. It barely makes it up hills and shakes immensely when doing so. I can reach the speeds I need to but it takes a while to get there and it feels like the engine is going to blow.
My check engine light begins to flash when accelerating.

Replaced all 3 Coil Packs last night and no more shaking, no more flashing check engine light, and it drives a lot smoother. Car is idling very nice.
However, I am still experiencing a sluggish response when I accelerate rapidly and on the top end. (A minor popping condition in the exhaust) It acts like it is hesitating. It almost feels like one of the cylinders is still missing.
Drives great under normal acceleration.
I am going to replace the #3 fuel injector tomorrow and see if that resolves the issue.
for future reference, whenever your check engine light flashes, it means there is a major cylinder misfire.
