My name isXXXXX type of problem is usually a cam sensor or crank sensor. But first have the codes checked to see if anything is showing. Even if the check engine light is not on there can be codes stored. The cam and crank sensors can be temperature sensitive as theta go bad and will sometimes act up as you Described and they are what I would try first if it was in my shop.
