Default Engine is missing.

Its pretty noticeable. Only happens when you just bearly press the throttle (0-5 mph) and 40 mph. Wondering if my valve timing is off or just needs to plugs. Any opinions? Its a 94 se 190000 miles.

Start with new plugs with the correct gap. Test the plug wires. If they are old consider replacing them.

Valve timing isn't adjustable. I'd agree and go with plugs/wires first.
