Ok.Just had the same problem with a 96 take the distributor cap off check rotor button see if it's burnt,if so replace it then take each spark plug out and dry off the gas.make sure you have a strong battery,hold the gas peddle half way when trying to start you may have to repeat to or three times cleaning the plugs I used jumper cables for strong battery when you smell gas clean the plugs.when the car is trying to start push the gas peddle all the way until it smooth out then let off you should be Still running good
