Car Model*:
Stuff like this gets fixed by systematic diagnosis. Random shot-in-the-dark guesses ("It's the timing chain! No, it's the ECU! No, it's the carburetor! The distributor! A burnt valve!") will only cost you time, money, and aggravation and probably not wind up fixing the car. Sudden bad running could be electrical (ECU, distributor pickup, wiring), could be induction (vacuum leaks, EGR leaks), could be fuel (trash in the carburetor)...you really need to do some thoughtful, careful diagnosis before buying more parts.
