a simple cause would be if distributor equiped carbon trace on the distributor cap,bad contact point,bad ignition wire(spark plug wire) if direct ignition then it could be a bad coil. another reason a clogged injector.,low compression.

could be your igniion coil. It is located inside of the distributor cap. If you havent gave your car a tune up recently, it could be your spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap or the rotor inside of the distributor. And if all these things are ok, make sure the engine is getting fuel. If not, it could be a clogged fuel filter or the fuel pump could be messed up. The fuel injectors could be clogged also

Moisture is getting into the distributor cap. It evaporates when it gets warm out. Replace it.

Yes, that is one of many possibilities.
