Sounds like it needs a good tune up! Some plugs and wires would be my first thing. Then filters, air and fuel. Lastly I would look into Cap and rotor on distributor. If that's not a fix let us know!

Flush coolant! Make sure you check the fluid levels more often.

If you have some mileage on it, you may want to toss in a new thermostat, flush the system and change the hoses too while you're in there.

Glad you found the root of the problem. I would also add the new thermostat while you are at it. It might be less than a $20 bill.
