You probably have a loose or corroded connection in the ignition system or a component that is going to die soon. See if the car has thrown any codes for ideas for where to start. If no codes, investigate components that should be energizing the spark plugs. If this car has a distributor, check things like the cap and rotor. Also coils could cause this.
