ENGINE HESITATES

1987 Oldsmobile 442 • 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 100,000 miles

1987 olds cutlass cierra with a 2.8 tech four. Engine cuts out at low rpm when I throttle quickly, but idles fine. There is a small backfire after the engine cuts out, so I was thinking it was electrical and not a gas issue, like plugs/wires? What about distributor or possibly the throttle position sensor? Any Ideas or things I can do to trouble shoot some of these possibilities?
