'93 Tempo -- Loss of Power and Rough Idle

I have been experiencing a loss of power while driving. It seems to occur mostly when accelerating. Takes a moment or two and then everything is back to normal. Also I've noticed rough idling with the occasional stalling while stopped. Thanx to anyone that can help.

You might want to check the distributor...
I had the same problem...

I replaced the distributor cap, the wires, and plugs. Good as, well...lol, new.

The problem seemed to go away, knock on wood. Thanks for the tip though. Probably do that soon.
