It's cross over year.. If you have a distributor on the side of the engine, I would be checking for play in the gear and/or an oil leak in/around the cap or around the plugs in the block.. If it's DI and north american, considered opinion would have it being 'upgraded' (perhaps incorrectly) at some point as they weren't supposed to be selling them here until 1990.. Finally - if may indeed be simply that your injectors are messed up after years of faithful service.. Pull one, put it in a can and then turn the engine over and see how it's putting out fuel - then move on the next one.. Be careful with it, you need to find a pal to start and start the motor for you as you test them and keep a full chemical extinguisher at hand..
