Hello,95 was the model update year. If your car has ignition system with distributors, problem can be caused by moist or faulty distributor caps and rotors. They are mounted to front ends of cylinder heads and have ignition wires running to the spark plugs. I suggest to have the rotor caps removed and cleaned first of all.Best regards,Stan
