Hit it with some Seafoam through the intake and a bottle of BG44K in the fuel tank. Then do plugs wires and all that other good stuff.

Well I tried plugs,wires,air filter and Seafoam in the gas.
Still runs terrible.
Even at highway speed it works fine when accelerating but if u let off and then try to accelerate it misses,bucks and tries to stall.
Seems worse when its damp out
Local repair shop tried spraying the coil with water to see if it would make it miss which it didnt
Any other thoughts before I take it to a dealer?
