Hi, I have a 1999 Chevy Prizm and had a similar problem right after I had the engine cleaned. It turned out that the pressure washer got some water inside the spark plug boots. I limped to a mechanic who replaced the wires and plugs and it has run perfectly since. BTW, it is the best car I have ever owned. I'm at 107K now and haven't had a single problem (besides this one which wasn't it's fault. :-) I had this problem for over a year. Had the O2 sensors replaced but no help. Finally took it to the dealer. They solved the problem by changing the MAF sensor. The car runs MUCH better now too.
