cold engine-misses; warm...runs fine

I have an 88 Lincoln Mark VII : the engine misses and intermittently jerks while driving when the motor is not very warm. If you wait about 15 minutes, after it has warmed up really well, it runs just fine.

It 'seems' like it wants to die when it is cold, but surges back to staying cranked...sort of like it was choking or getting air between gas...

Have put in new plugs, wires, distributor cap, fuel filter, coil and have 'cleaned' injectors.

Have a clue?
