Hi Andy, my name is***** looks like the first expert has opted out of this question. Moisture build up in the distributor caps is a common problem on this model. I would inspect the caps for moisture and for signs of arcing. Improperly adjusted fuel mixture could also cause the problem. If the mixture is set too rich it would be most noticeable on a cold start.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Even though you have been charged by the website the website does not pay me my portion of the charge until you rate my service or reply back to me to let me know that you are satisfied with my help. Please take a moment to rate my service or reply back to me.
