Check the resistance on the plug wires with an ohm meter, could have a bad one or more. New plugs are not a bad idea either. Check the coil with a meter while you have it out.

Any time you let a vehicle set up for awhile with gas in it the gas will gum up in the lines and injectors. The only injector cleaner i like using is lucas injector cleaner. You can use what ever kind you like But you need to clean the lines and injectors.
