My car has a manual transmission.
A mechanic with an oscilloscope would look at the secondary firing patterns to see if the engine is possibly running lean due to inadequate fuel or a vacuum leak. Without a scope, what you can do is check for a leaking EGR valve, intake manifold leak or leaking vacuum hose, leaking throttle (carburetor) gasket or low fuel pressure due to a weak fuel pump or bad pressure regulator. Fuel pressure should be around 6.5 PSI at idle but your Factory Service Manual will have a precise value.
