Ignition coil, bad plug wire.


Coil, plug wire, spark plug, vacuum leak, fuel injector, compression, flat cam lobe. Could be many things and really impossible to diagnose over the internet with out more information. Information such as compression readings, ECU codes etc. I would take it to a good independent mechanic and have it looked at.
