1) Check your spark plugs. Clean and regap or replace if nec.

2) Check your plug wires. I had this happen on my F150 - it would run fine until I put it under a load and then it would miss. I checked my plugs, then I check my wires. One of the terminals going into the coil pak was burned half off and green from all the arcing. Replaced wires and ran fine.

Check/Replace plugs and wires first.
