Clean the throttle body
Check the throttle body cable for proper tension
Check distributor coil arc per ezone method
Check mechanical (cam/crank) timing
Check valve clearances

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

If you have this situation, plugs AND wires MUST be replaced at the same time.

In my experience, plugs and wires should ALWAYS be replaced at the same time. Tried both ways.... never again.
