Now that you done the igntion system do the fuel system

then your looking at the fuel pump and injectors

i would try some fuel injector cleaner you put in you gas tank

if its your fuel pump it wont last long the pump will die soon

check your coil packs or distribuator all connection areas should be bright shiney and clean

get back to me if this doesnt help

Checked the coil pack plug connections with younger eyes. The rubber boot was pushed back, not sealing out moisture and the terminals were very corroded. We cleaned them up with electical cleaner and roughed them up as much as possible. The problem has not reoccured so far.

Thanks much for leading me in the right direction.
