First off, check the time/date in your computer--it thinks it's still 
June!

Then check to make sure that your distributor is advancing correctly, 
especially the mech adv. This is where a timing light comes in handy.

Then check the voltage between one of the hot terminals of your fuse 
box when the engine is warm and at medium rpms. It should be 14V or a 
bit higher. If it is below 13V replace the voltage regulator.
