My car runs fine when you first start it cold, but when it warms up it runs on three cylinders at low rpms and gets worse as it gets hotter. When I stop at a light its also worse for like 3 seconds when I go again. At first I thought it was my head gasket, but could it be my fuel injector.

Sounds like you have a clogged injector. When the engine is misfiring, use a long screw driver and listen to each injector click by puting the end of the screw driver on the injector and the other to your ear. If the click on #3 is different then it is the injector. If not get a professional injector cleaning. On the off chance it may be a bad electrical connection to #3. Check that also. Good luck
