Its actually a 1988 Celebrity. Sounds like it runs rough only during acceleratio

Runs rough when accelerating only. Idle is fine, reverse is fine, when you plane out it is fine. Seems to only do it during accelerating. What is cuasing this??

Usually caused by failing spark plug wire(s) breaking down under load... May be time for a tune-up.

Yea I did all that just before winter hit. It's a bit hard to explain how it's running rough when accelerating but thats the only time it does it. Also the vehicle seems louder too when it happens. Like I said its only when i accelerate. Could it b a sensor or engine mount?
