Icon13 Sluggish jerking feeling. Running bad........again

Hey whats up guys. I had a question for you all. I may know the answer but gonna need some input on it, first my truck information.

1996 Ford Ranger, 4.0 EFI


Things you should know. I just replaced the coil pack, plug, and plug wires 2 months ago. Also replaced the fuel filter.......

Now I am losing coolant. I looked under my truck today and saw that there was coolant dripping (Not alot, there was no droplets on the asphault after all day of sitting) off the head of the bolts holding my oil pan in place. So I was on my way home from work today and it was sluggish, and jerky. I couldnt even bearly hit the gas without it doing so. So my question is, what the hell could be causing this after I installed new parts. It did this before in febuary of this year. Than quit and now its back again. Im getting tired of it. any ideas? Please let me know. Thanks guys.

there might be a coolant leak into the engine causing a misfire and what plugs and wires did you put on it?
