You should check the timming & the plugs
then pull the valve covers & look for anything out of place or making noise.

also check the timing chain.

Remove cap then rock the crank {by hand} back & forth} to see how much play is in the chain by watching the dist cap {how much the crank turns before the dist does}

You might have a sticking valve or lifter in that case marvel Mystery oil.
