92 500SL runs rough,intermittantly

from time to time my 92 500SL runs really rough and has no power .I usually limp along and it eventually clears up after a few minutes.I only use it on weekends,it seems to be more prevalent the longer it sits in the garage,like in winter I use my Subie Outback.I use Tech-Ron about every 5000 miles,just installed a fresh set of Bosch Plat.4 plugs and K&N air filters .It rarely happens in the summer months when car gets more use.I also find really getting on the gas pedal really helps keep that beautiful 32V O.H.C. V8 purrin like a kitten this is one world class motor!

Caps & rotors. What's the mileage? They last 60k miles/7-8 years MAX
