need to know which engine you have to give specs. In the meantime, when did you last change the fuel filter? It needs to go if you haven't done it yet. Then if the problem persists check fuel pressure. Position the gauge so you can see it when you hit the gas and see if it drops off. You say you did the plugs but what about the wires? They have no more of an infinite life than the plugs do. It may be overkill to some, but when I order plugs I always order wires. I've never had complications from that, but I've had complications when I didn't.
