Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, replace the distributor cap. If the cap is worn out it tends not to give current to the plugs. If problem still persist then the problem will be on the distributor coil pack itself. It's the main supply of current to the plugs. Located inside the engine where the distributor cap sits.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
