I had the same problem with mine and a new distributor cap and rotor did the trick.

i took off the air cleaner and clened everything up with penetrating oil and sprayed the injectors with carb cleaner seems to be good to go now but still a bear to start im gonna try a cap and rotor anyways so well see what happens

If you can find an easy way of getting the cap off(aside from removing the engine), let me know. I think it took me about an hour to get it off and put the new one on. Of course it was about 10 below outside. Still, it's in a stupid location.
