Get a compression testor from your local auto parts place and see what the compression is down to. It may have been a hard 80K miles and time for a rebuild. Any strange noises (clamk, ping, etc)?

also try checking your distributor cap. i had the same problem only i lost 1 cylinder. anyways what happened was i got an arc down the side of my cap which ended up making the electrical current take that path instead of my plug wire. the fix was under $20 from napa.
