when was the last time you did a tuneup? this is ussaly spark plugs wires and filters with an oil change. Your spark plugs are likely dirty or dieing other simalure issues can be from Clogged fuel filter, Dirty MAF sensor, clogged crank case hoses or broken vacum lines. some times it can also be attributed to bad gas but unless your not using high tess gas then this would not be the issue.

as i said in the previous post do a tune up and it will likely correct the issue since that code means you have a misfire

Start with the cheapest fix...fuel injector cleaner...then go as described above.
