Question: car starts but when i press the gas it dies

At first my car was "puttering" along. When I would drive it would shake real bad but when I put it in neutral it calms down a bit. So I was told to put new spark plugs in and I did now the car starts like it did before but now when I press the gas it shuts down. The service engine light is on. Help!
