the wires...make sure they are the new silicone ones..not butyl rubber~

Wait till it gets dark, no street lights, raise the hood and start it up, watch for stray sparks from the ignition wires, if you don't see any then get a spray bottle of water and spry the wires and see if you then see sparks, if you do then it is time to replace the plug wires.

Like the first two said bad wires OR check to make sure you are not getting water under your dist. cap. Check cap for condensation after a rain.

power to the coil should be checked...12vdc with a tester~...then ground...make sure the battery ground is connected to the frame and engine~
