Carlos it sounds to me like your running with a dead cylinder. I want you to test for spark on all four of your plugs one at a time. You can buy a spark tester at most auto parts stores or just use a small diameter but long screw driver. With the engine off key off pull a plug wire off and insert the plug end of tester into the wire boot or stick the end of the screw driver in and attach the clip on tester to engine block or hold the shaft of the screw driver an 8th of an inch from the block an have a helper crank the motor ( be sure to keep all lose clothing and items away from moving parts) if you see spark jump the gap it's good. You can also remove the spark plug stick it back in the wire boot and holding the boot hold the threaded end of plug against the block. And watch the electrode for blue spark. I'm thinking you have a bad coil.
if vthe fuel pressure is going bad then the car will give you small stumble when starting the engine. during the process of starting or turning motor off have you smell gasoline? these are symptoms that a fuel pressure reg is starting to go bad. make sure this is resolve before going and buying to find out is not the solution to the problem.

anytime you can smell gas, you have a leak, not good to drive if you can smell strong fume and not safe to drive. check all fuel line and fuel filter connection. check gasket on intake manifold and your injector. The rpm goes up and drown erratically, check your distributor connections and the ground wires. If distrubutor has bad ground or conection can cause erratic behavior RPM guage.
I would check the exhaust pipe a little closewr. White smoke can also mean a blown head gasket. Check the tail pipe to see if moisture is present. Also check coolant level. A blown head gasket can also cause related problems.
