Chevy Cavalier RS 2.2 litre I4

Comes and Goes In Random spurts every couple of days give or take, but it will start spitting and sputtering engine will sounds like a bag of pop corn in the mic. with the occasional back fire, tried changing the plugs and wires, put in a new fuel filter, was thinking of going on to the coil packs...but wasnt sure if i should go for that next any other ideas would be appreciated
