If intake was problem you would most likely have lean codes. Does it run any better at highway or at idle? Does check engine light flash? Thanks.

Customer: replied 21 days ago.
it has lack of power on accellerator, at idle has very distinct miss. lite stays on steady. I haven't taken it on highway .
Expert:  Dan replied 21 days ago.

With lack of power does it seem like it has a RPM limiter such as not want to go over 3000 rpm? Thanks.

Customer: replied 21 days ago.
no not rpm limiter, just lack of power
Expert:  Dan replied 21 days ago.

I'd start by checking spark strength on each cylinder, you may have another failed coil. Let me know, thanks.
