Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

This can be due to an issue with high resistance in the spark plug wires.spark plug gap incorrect can also cause this sometimes or even corroded distributor cap itself.These will need to be checked into to locate which component is the cause here.Once this is done the component found at fault will need to be replaced.If the spark plug wires have not been replaced in the last 5 years or 100,000 miles I would replace them as well as the distributor cap and re check the gap for the spark plugs.
