Default Engine Misses When Cold, OK When Warmed Up

I just got home from school. While I was gone I had my GF start up the car at least once and week and drive it at least twice a month. If I cold start the car or if it sits for an hour, the engine misses until it reaches operating temperature. After reaching OT, it runs fine. There are no CELs. I have already filled up the fuel tank with fresh gas. I won't have time to order new plugs, rotor, or wires before I leave again for school.


Any ideas?

Found the problem. Cracked insulator on spark plug #3.

Now, I have to buy another distributor. It's making a grinding noise. :sigh: it never ends.
