Almost sounds like it's missing. Have you changed the spark plug wires? I would pulling by one answer if you notice a difference. Could have a bad wire. Sounds like a timing issue.

Pull your cap if you not changed it. Check inside it. See if you see white lines on the inside. Best describes and white lightning marks. Could be bad cap that's causing a misfire.

Sorry I was answering the questions. Above for this forum. But have you checked to make sure you have oil?

My rule of thumb is always check fluids and change oil when buying a used Alvarez that is not certified.

Better do a compression check you could have a dead or very weak cylinder.
