Default 95 SL2 just started running funny.

When I got about a block from home tonight on my way home from work my 95 SL2 started to run a bit funny.

It seems to run fine when I tried to accelerate, but when I pressed the gas just enough to keep the engine running at the same speed I was traveling (around 35 mph in 4th gear) it seemed like the engine was loosing and regaining power.

The check engine light has not turned on yet, so there are no codes. Also the engine now dies when idling. The temperature was just below 1/2 on the gauge. I pulled the plug wires and they weren't wet or oily. The engine was hot so I didn't remove the plugs yet to look at them. The ECTS was replaced a few years ago before the car was mine and before I knew the difference between the plastic and brass ones. It was obtained from a Saturn dealer for $19.

I'm about to go remove the plugs to take a look at them. The auto parts stores around here are closed right now so I can't pick up new plugs and wires until tomorrow.

Any guesses as to what might be wrong?
