If you have good fuel pressure, then i'ld lean towards the Ignition Control Module (ICM) it's around $40.00 at Auto Zone. They work when there still cold and when they heat up, they start to fail till they cool down again and eventually they fail totally. Auto Zone will have the step by step instruction to getting the job done. The ICM is under the rotor in the distributor, and the wires may also be corroded or broken. Inspect for any damages to the wire harness in the distributor before installing the new ICM. Good luck and hope this helps.

What you have is a bad ignitor. It is a small part located behind the RPM limiter. Getting to it is a little tricky but I will try to explain. On the front of the motor, you will find 2 10mm bolts holding a black object that is the RPM limiter. Take these two bolts out and you will find the silver part behind the black box. It will have one wire running to it. The reason it is intermittent, is that heat from the engine builds up and the heat causes it to be bad. When it cools down, it will go to running again. The part runs about $50-$70 . Replace and make sure the connection fits snugly and that the wire that was under one of the bolts goes back on.

With the engine running at about half power/speed, put a volt meter across the battery terminals. The meter should read somewhere around 14.5 volts. If it is below 13 volts it is definitely not charging. Consider that the battery, unless new, could also be failing.

The problem is most likely a bad connection at the battery or the underhood fuse panel behind the battery. Recheck these connections and included the ECT (Engine Coolant Temperature) sensor (wires and harnesses).
Fuel system? Relative to how gasoline engines work, one that has sat during the 8-hour workday is nearly as 'cold' as one which has sat overnight (overnight will dip mebbe 30*F more, but this is practically irrelevant to an engine). The one major variable is volatility of the gasoline, which is affected by atmospheric temp especially when the engine isn't warmed-up. Starting this month (and continuing until fall) the 'blend' of gasoline will change from 'winter' to slower-vaporizing 'summer' in most regions of the country; you may have it now, or from some specific gas station.
If the car's Inlet Air Temperature (IAT) sensor (in the airbox), is faulty and reading too high, then the combination could push your engine 'over the edge' in terms of the PCM trying to set the proper richness for 'cold start.'
Keep us updated.
