2.3 Engine Problems

I have a 1991 2.3 and am having some issues guys. About two weeks ago it would sputter around a certain RPM and then stop once I powered through it. BUT it would not do it sometimes and then do it other times. Then all of the sudden a couple of days ago it would idle EXTREMELY rough, like one cylinder. I went out and turned it on today then, IT IDLES FINE!!! Anybody got any idea whats going on?

Wait till dark. Start the engine.

Open your hood and (mist) spray your plug wires and coil with a windex bottle (use water).

If you see any arcing, you need plug wires.

Best I can do with the symptoms provided.
