You need to check distributor cap/wiring/spark plugs. when engine cold resistans at electric parts/connections is low. Then it warms up it increases and electric current goes down. Maybe you have bad connection somethere. Your car is equpped with digital motor electronics fuel (DME) injection. Here there is component location and diagnostic:
Also I would check fuel injectors itself (use injector cleaner), fuel filter (replace). If no help MAF sensor, trottle position sensor. There is good repair guide here:
Please kindly let me know if this info was usefull for you or you need more info.
