You need to pull the cover on it and look for corroded solder joints, if there are then you might be able to clean with alcohol and a tooth brush then if you can touch the solder connections with a solder iron to re-solder the connections. Be very care full doing this. Check the resistance on your coils, crank and cam sensors. Like Ken said could be your alternator output too. My money is on your crank sensor. One other thing check you fuel pressure and your spark plug wires. If these two things haven't been replaced yet then replace the filter first and so on.
