Bad plug, plug wire, burnt valve, broken compression ring, blown head gasket or bad distributor cap. Improved answer: Youre probably lookin at a faulty fuel injector more than anyhting else. Replace it now and dont waste any more time looking through all kinds of answers. Fule system cleaners wont work at this point.
