Check the spark plug wires. Have them ohmed out to see if there are any resistance shown in readings and below 25 k ohms.
What is the idling speed when engine is initially started?
Did you check for trouble codes?

Sorry for the delay did not think I could get trouble code off of 1993 without a reader thanks for the heads up. Codes were 14 and 52 change the knock sensor(52) no help. But I thought I was on the right track. Anyway I changed the idle air control and that fixed the prolbem. Never would has guessed. Thanks for the help.
