Sounds like the problem is in the ignition system, coil, spark plug wires, cap, rotor all should be checked.

great thanks will try that


wow- an Aspen- cool- those are pretty basic cars- shouldn't be too hard to diagnose- modern enough to have an electronic ignition- sounds like an ignition module- do you have a good mechanic? keeps you from guessing and replacing all those parts you really don't have to-


There was a high fail item on these, the pickup plate in the distributor would intermittently cut out then cut right back in again. I would recommend replacing that part.
