Ford Escort - engine

Hi,

I need your help to figure out why my engine is sputtering for 15-20 minutes when it is cold. It does start ok when cold
and
After that is just running ok without problems. The engine misses are random and I can correlate them with a cylinder ,
have no timing but are felt more when I accelerate when shaking occur.

I changed the gas , air filters, spark plugs rotor cap but it did not help. Is this an electrical problem or engine
related?

Any ideas?

Thank you,

Chris

It may be a moisture problem; use the silicone dielectric tune-up grease at the
sparkplug and distributor boots.
