well i would check your coils and your wires if your wires have scorche marks then replace them and if you did change your plugs then check the gap on them and it could allso be checking your distribitor cap and rotor it could be falty if it has had any moister under it

I had a '95,..my best fix was to get a 2002 'Z06' & the problem disappeard, maybe that'll work for you,.. the ZR1 is even better medecine for an aching right foot....Ma, pass me the hammer so I can hit my foot pleeeease?
