Make sure all the plug wires click into place. Also check the firing order at the coil. I have messed this up myself. It goes: 465 on the back and 123 in the front. Not sure exactly but make sure you didn't mix them up.

This happens all the time. Check five and six. The coil pack is in a different order from the cylinders themselves
