I had a similar experience as far as the poor performance and idle at low speed. I drove, parked the car and on restart a lot of low speed idle missing and stumbling but ran fine at freeway speed, so I assumed it wasn't a fuel problem. On the way home changed rotor and cap in the parking lot of parts store (easiest things to change) with no help. When I got home I changed the plug wires with a spare set (I am a pack rat when it comes to parts) and that cured it. The defective set was a $65.00 set. The spare set was a $14.00 set from Kragen. As far as the electrical problem I've had bad poitive and negative ground battery cables that looked good with a voltmeter but just wouldn't hold the capacity. Just a few things to check, electrical problems are a bear, good luck.
