Your engine uses a combination of coils on the plugs and 3 spark plug wires. The symptoms you describe are normally caused by bad plug wires. I would replace those first and if it continues then replace the boots for the coils (between the coil and plug). When the insulation gets older it will cause arcing when the moisture is present.
