Warden; Rather cryptic information, but could be that it is running too rich? Check CTS (coolant temp sensor). These vehicles are known for faulty thermostats (engine not getting hot enough). Check the coolant level, check the oil for
fuel smell and viscosity. If it smells like gas, and looks and feels thin, be sure to change it. Look at the spark plugs. Are they black and sooty? Or wet with fuel?

You can also check the compression across the board. Your timing chain could have jumped time. Also, I have seen faulty ignition modules and ignition pick-ups wreak havoc and give major driveability problems.
A quick way to find out on the chain is this, remove #1 cylinder spark plug. Disable the ignition coil. Insert your finger into the spark plug hole and have an assistant BUMP the engine over. When the compression blows your finger out of the hole, rotate the crank pulley to 0* tdc. Remove the distributor cap, if the rotor is pointing at #1 cylinder on the cap the chain didn't jump. If the rotor is pointing to any other cylinder, the chain jumped time.
