Having discovered that you have opposable thumbs, the next step is to become familiar with punctuation.
Then turn your attention to ignition timing, firing order, and ignition system condition.

Geeebus frank, yer kinda edgy but hen... I'd throw the entire ignition system standard maintenance at it. New coil, Cap and rotor, wires & plugs. That stuff has to be done eventually anyway. If that isn't it get a 29$ ICM off ebay from china.
