With the engine running, get a household spray bottle (like a Windolene glass cleaner bottle or tile and bath tube cleaner) fill it with water, engine running gently mist water over the spark plug wires and distributor car and see if the engine idle changes, if it changes as you spray a certain spark plug wire you have found the wire that has poor insulation and a new spark plug wire set is needed.

Its usually ignition problem like old wires that cause this type of system. If equipped check coil.
