Have a missfire that occurs on cold mornings. Happens shortly after a cold start - major bucking on accelleration or cruise and very rough idle. Then the check engine light comes on and it it stalls. The code set is for 'missfire'. After a while I can drive it with the check engine light on and it seems OK.
Have changed cap, rotor and ignition pickup in distributer (plugs and wires have less than 15k miles.
99 Dakota 3.9L 5 speed, 115k miles. This problem 1st occured 3 years ago on a cold morning (cold in florida is 40 degrees) then did not occur again until recently.
