Hello,l the rotary engine can become sensitive sometimes to ignition problems, In stop and go and if a weak igniton part, you will in fact experience exactly what you describe, The rotary engine is so much different than a standard engine, They can easily flood as well. so what i feel the issue is, you need to change the plugs and plug wires, Plug wires are likely the issue but do plugs at same time. If a bad ignition component on this type of engine, the under heat will build up in traffic and the bad ignition component will break down so sort of like running on 2 cylinders instead of 4 persay, here is a link you can click on showing how the wires go. Below is only written info
CAUTION: Install the high-tension lead with blue and green tape on the trailing side.
