Could be. See if there are any codes stored in the computer. If the wires are arcing, I'd eliminate that as a source to start with. I prefer Belden or Standard or AC Delco wires myself. Pull a plug too, the only two brands I would use are AC Delco or Autolite. The Bosch splitfire for example are usually for trouble than anything. But they are marketed to the public. I believe these should be double platinum. They are not meant to be re-gapped as the platinum can scratch off. They can be adjusted with care and common sense. If the gap is incorrect or there is an oddball brand in there, I'd change them.
Take a look in the throttle bore, is there a fair amount of carbon? If so there probably is on the intake valves as well as they should get cleaned.
Might not hurt to check you fuel pressure. Eliminating the basics can save a lot of time and hassle.
