Car appears to be misfiring or poor gas/air mixture. When turning on, almost sounds like it is struggling but then idles normal. When in first gear, if light gas is applied car functions normally but if trying to accelerate to shift into second car sputters/wont accelerate, will sometimes "catch" and accelerate, but then begin to sputter again. Can go into second and problem becomes much more apparent. Several weeks ago engine light came on and said Cylinder 5 was misfiring, but light went off on its own and has had no further problems until now. Replaced distributer cap (teeth inside looked chalky), and rotor button. Spark plug wires are in good condition. Does not appear to be MAP sensor. Any thoughts?
