Default A Newb, with some questions!

Hey y'all!

So, I recently got a wonderful '94 5 speed 2WD with 208,xxx and I love it. I'm planning a road trip of about 2200 miles and have one problem I need to get solved before I roll out.

When I am cruising in any gear, and especially in 3rd gear, the car lunges forward and then backs down repeatedly until I give it some gas. The gearbox isn't in great shape and the accelerator cable is iffy, although I adjusted the tension via zip ties. I didn't have this problem until maybe a month into owning it, after a tire change.

Could it be injectors? Plugs?

Thanks for the help guys!
