Question: 1992 Buick Misfires, runs rough and bad acceleration

I have a 1992 Buick Park Avenue Base Model that stalled while idleing. Went to re-start and the battery went dead immediately. Had it tested and had a bed cell so it was replaced. Car will re-start but runs very rough, misfires and will not accelerate past 30 mph. Any suggestions
