2.3L misfiring

Hello,

I've got misfires when starting my engine for the first time the morning. Usually misfires last about 10-15 min and when I drive the misfires disappear.
The trick is a let the engine idles for about 5 min and the misfires disappear.

Anyone know this problem ?

Thank your for your help guys.

I think something is wet, check inside the stem on the plug wires at the coil pack. Moisture will build up over night then evaporate when the engine warms up. Check to see if they fit tight over the coil pack and plugs.
