I have appointment on Monday, with a mechanic that charges $125 an hour,to check it out.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
He said(without seeing it) the plugs should last 100k mi. So,it may just need a tune up.
Expert:  A. Penland replied 11 months ago.
The rough running could be caused by the spark plugs, coil pack or the plug wires. Granted they usually last 100,00 miles, but the vehicle is 23 years old. I agree with him stating it may just need a tune up. That is the most common cause of a miss fire or a rough running problem.
