And wires and plugs and fuel filter and air filter and pcv valve. If the cap and rotor are worn then it's time for a tuneup

A crack or carbon deposits in the distributor cap can cause the miss-fire. They are a cheap product. Replace them, the rotor and points. Think of going to a pointless/transistor style replacement. IF you have a good mechanic, have him check the wires and plugs also. Maybe time to replace them too for good measure.

Yup, time for a tune up. Plugs, wires, cap, and rotor. - Jim
