I suggest for you to check spark plugs and more important the resistance in your ignition wires, also check coil output. Hope this helps.

thanx will see if can do. RESULT: I found one ignition wire broken inside...where makes connection plug female. Changed all ignition wiresthis week end. Car started up few sputters....then all cleared..ran excellent next 15 minutes...let reach normal engine temp. accelerated hard...70 mph freeway...all good....then when parking after test...again sputter/hesitation....seems failure comes and goes.....can coil fail occasionally ?? This morning tested again: started normal...warmed up...took for short run...all well fast/slow... did not fail.....however noticed in PARK when rev up engine...does spudder and once heard a small pop sound... then drove around under load again and no failure....
