timing , not just ignition , but valve(timing belt?). What is the reading from a vacuum guage hooked in after the throttle at idle? steady and at least 17"? spark plugs fouling with gas? Checked fuel pressure with gauge?

Ok I will check that out, if its the belt will it show signs of any kind.

Vacuum leak or low compression on one or more cyls. is my guess.
Since that is all we can do here.

HEY! SPEAK FOR YOURSELF, I NOT ONLY GUESS , BUT I PONDER AND THEORIZE! MAYBE THAT'S WHY I GET HEADACHES.

Really hard to anticipate just exactly what the actual problem is since we can't see the car from here.
Could be and usually is something not of the norm. But the normal stuff is a good place to start!

I have a hard time with 'normal' as you can tell , but you are completely right!
