You have spark plug, wires, and/or coil issues. Make sure you have the firing order correct and you use dielectric grease in the wire boots at both ends.

Changed wires

When it first started missing o noticed the wires have ruined grooves into each other I tried to move it and it shocked the crap out me I knew they were bad so I changed them I'm guessing I have fouled plugs maybe and dirty sensor and a vacuum leak and a little old gas
