Sounds like the TPS (throttle position sensor) usually located where the throttle body meets the intake manifold. It may need re-calibrating or renewing.

A quick effective inexpensive fix would be to spray your electrical system with a can of Rust Check. While it is a rust proofing it is also waterproof. If you get the stuff in the green can, it is thicker and doesn't wear off near as quick. Hope thishelps.

Sounds like timing is off or the plug wires are sequences wrong.
Has anything recently been done to the vehicle? (e.g. tune up, timing, plugs).
What other symptoms if any does it have?
When it warms up, does it run smoother?
If so, hows the power?
Any other details, would help us to help you.
In the mean time, check the plugs to see if they're fouled. Check the plug wires are seated properly and in the correct order. Providing the Engine size would help if you need the firing sequence.

Your first mistake is thinking that the only thing that can cause a misfire is a coil or spark plug. Misfires can be caused by MANY things, including faulty fuel injectors, injector control circuits, blown head gaskets, vacuum leaks, burned valves, broken valve springs, low compression due to cylinder damage, worn piston rings, damaged or worn camshafts, etc..
I would recommend getting this problem properly diagnosed by a professional. Failure to fix misfire codes promptly can cause severe engine damage and destroy high-dollar parts like oxygen Sensors, catalytic converters, engine blocks and cylinder heads.
