Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Expert:  rpmdiag replied 3 months ago.

Check the ignition module next, and if that's good, the ignition switch may be causing this. Make sure the distributor components are good too.

Thanks, Ron

The MSD. It's possible that the distributor is failing too, but you would need to check it with a lab scope.

Thanks again and please remember to rate me 5 stars and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
