Hi there, sounds like this car might have either a bad coil pack or the distributor cap has gone bad. 3 most important things are air, fuel and 12v power. Seems your getting all three but one of them is giving you trouble. Sounds like spark. Try a new distributor cap or a new set of coils and see if that solves the problem.
if it isnt the spark it has to be fuel or air which would lead to lack of fuel pressure which can cause sluggish behavior or the air sensor in the intake if there is any is not working properly and the computer is running on a safety fuel map that is a base map used by manufacturers which burns alot of fuel but stops the engine from destroying it self. Check the coils o the sensors.

Testimonial: "thats what i had encountered from other sources. it is nice to know that im not going to blow 120 bucks on something that might not have any effect."
Have you checked for vaccume leaks?
You've got lots of parts in there, Has the problem been the reason you have replaced all of those, or did it come up while doing some of the repairs?

I am having the same issue on Mitsubishi Galant 02. Clattering on acceleration, herky jerky idle. Pulled a code multiple cylinder misfire. My mechanic's diagnosis is bad valve cover gasket causing oil to seap into the spark plugs and bad timing belt, which I have not replaced at 150k miles. I do however know my fuel injectors do need cleaning, he hasn't ruled that out either. Have you pulled any code on it? I have read on engine knock sensor going out on some of these also. Hope this helps some.
