With all the rain you've had up there...have you drained your fuel bowl? Also...you may have gotten some bad fuel. Those might be the cheapest and easiest things to check first.

And welcome to the site.

sounds like an injector missing? do you have a way to get codes?? that would help alot. you may have a under the valvecover wire connector loose. try running the engine,grab the wires were they go into the valvecover and wiggel them. if it smooths out or you can make it clank its a wire connector under the valve cover.
