You also might want to check if you are runnng lean or Rich. Check you timing adv or retard it a bit and see what happens

you need to check your fuel filter do you have an check eng light? if so take the car to auto zone and have then run a diagnostic tool on the car

check your injectors and your valves. and replace the fuel filter. when u check your injectors and valves make sure u clean them both out.
