To the OP:

This wasn't the cause of the problem I had (I had a bad coil), but when replacing the coil, I inspected the pig tail, and saw that the insulation around the wires leading into the pigtail was cracked.

sleepyboy Welcome to the forum

Sounds like a fuel pressure issue to me. Your symptoms are very similar to the fuel pump going out. Very common on that model year. They redesigned the fuel pump and fuel pump canister after the 01' model year. You can try replacing the fuel filter sometimes that helps. Others may have more suggestions just need to wait for them to chime in
