Sounds like ither either:

a) spark plugs
b) Ignition leads
c) Dizzy cap
d) Dizzy

I had this problem with my car once and replaced the dizzy cap and it went away and was fine after

well i would see if you can borrow a set of leads from a friend who has the same engine just to rule them out then you could swap the dizzy caps over to rule that out then change the spark plugs if they doesnt help.

Just saves you buying a new set of spark plugs if you dont need em!

well before it was running on 3 cylinders and i took each lead off 1 at a time and checkd for a spark and they all seemed fine but in the end it was the idle sensor and it was fine but it just missfires under acceleration now
