The ignition timing may be off or maybe you have big vacuum leak. Is the check engine light on?

Has it ever been tuned up? At 110,000 miles you're overdue. Let's start with new spark plugs and spark plug wires. Check the coil packs as well. If one is failing replace all 3. The other 2 are soon to follow. HTH. -Jim
