tell me how/when this problem first begin
this sounds as if you have a somewhat common thing to happen to these votec engines
i would think your problem is the distributor cap,,these caps will jump a spark on the inside were they are wormed so the plug wires come out straight..
it will still have a spark but it is sparking at the wrong times.
i have also had many bad new caps right out of the box
i think you are lucky here,and it is an easy fix.
replace the distributor cap and rotor
