Misses, then runs decent. It seems to run worse when you put it in gear and try to drive it (kind of like an old carburetor that needs rebuilding because of sitting and/or gunk built up in it.

Wouldn't hurt to run some fuel injector cleaner through the system, get some for the tank. Also check for any vacuum leaks. Does it idle ok, or is it rough? How long has it been for replacing the distributor cap and plug wires? They will with age leak off high voltage, especially at critical times. A restricted fuel filter will rob you of power too.

I have to step on the gas to start my fuel injected engine, then when I get it running, put it in gear, it dies. As the engine heats up it gets worse. Much worse and I have a lot of trouble keeping it...

Look for the pcv valve in the valve cover pull it out and take it off the vac line and see if its dirty should be able to shake it and you should hear a rattle or clicking when you shake it also check the line to be sure its not dry rot and broken, sounds like you may have a vac leak

1994 bonneville misses especially at speed and acellerating

good chance you may have a bad coil, you can check by disconnecting the plug wires at the coil to see if your getting any spark, if your not seeing any spark when car is running your coil is bad. be sure to do disconnect the plug wire when engine is not running and key is off!
New coils run around $26.00 easy to change out, you only need a nut driver, 2 small bolts.
