go to any national chain parts store and they will pull the code for you-I'd guess based on what you wrote that it is a crank or cam sensor, or a bad ignition module.

2000 Ford focus: Turns over, but no ignition (Quit starting)

If you smell fuel, it could be a glogged filter, it could be a bad fuel pump, it could be a bad ignition coil, it could be a bad catylatic converter. I would guess though by the info you gave, that the coil shorted out due to a faulty plug. Look under the car also for any sign of leaking fuel, your best bet at this point is to have a scanner hooked up to it to more closely pinpoint the problem instead of guessing and spending a lot of money on guessing

My 2004 envoy sputters when I start it. I just changed all six spark plugs and it does the same thing. Check engine light is on. Handheld computer is logging misfires, P106, P128 codes. Lags and will...

The P0106 code indicates a problem in the MAP sensor area. Did you reconnect the MAP sensor connector after the plug change or seat it properly?
The P0128 code has to do with the coolant temperature not coming up to operating temp fast enough, this usually means the thermostat is stuck open.

2004 Ford Focus LX, was sputtering while driving

A flashing light is BAD. Its damaging the cat converter. I would check or replace the spark plug wires ( if all OK, then) replace the coil pack. I would not replace anything unless they test bad. but these car are known for bad coil packs.
