Another, really simple solution may just be to check the plugs for excesive
buildup.  Sometimes, a good cleaning can do WONDERS.  If you have an air
compressor at home, you can buy a spark plug cleaner which does the trick.
A blow torch is another easy way to clean them, to some extent.  But me, I
ussualy use dentistry tools, or a small scraper.  Good luck with it.
