Inspect wiring, if everything checks out ok, you'll have to remove intake and clean it.

would it be the injectors

Sorry i forgit it's a 92. Run and disconnect one sparkplug wire at a time and see which one does not have an effect on engine, the one that doesn't make a difference when u disconnect it, that's the cylinder you want to troubleshoot. Check for spark, compression or fuel

Careful for shock with spark plugs. Use leather gloves or well insulated tools when checking for spark
