Check air filter and clean throttle body, replace fuel filter and add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank.

Have your dad check the resistance of the spark plug wires and the coil with an ohm meter. The specs can be obtained from the net.

Okay thanks, both of yall. I'll have him check it when I get off.
