1998 Honda Accord EX sputters for first 30 - 45 seconds

My 1998 Honda Accord EX sputters for the first 30 - 45 seconds from a cold start but then "kicks in" and run perfectly fine from that moment on. I have had the distributor replaced, the fuel pump replaced, two oxygen sensors replaced and several spark plug cables replaced. I am at a wall with what to check next.

    No water found. My mechanic has now turned it over to a Honda dealership who is as baffled as he is. They are now thinking it may have something to do with the computer????

    You can close this out. Thanks for the help.

    Honda eventually was able to determine it was a fuel pressure gauge??? $1200.00 and a lot of replaced parts later, I am hoping it wasn't a $2.00 part:)

    Was there any water in the gas tank when they did the fuel pump? This can cause a sputter when cold, then possibly a rougher idle than normal.

Have the compression checked its likely a head gasket is leaking and letting antifreeze back in the cylinder when you turn off the engine radiator would also be a lttle low

Check for a sticker with the radio code inside the glove box. Some dealers fixed a second sticker in the owners manual. If not available, get the code from a Honda dealer, and be prepared to show VIN number, and proof of vehicle ownership.
