Yes that sounds like an ignition problem I would start by replacing the spark plugs, the spark plug wires and the distributor cap and rotor and the air filter, this is just a basic tune up but that's where I would begin.

You can read what the ECTS is telling your computer with a scanner. (It will read in degrees) If this is bad, sometimes it will read -40 degrees and cause the system to add more fuel, which may be you issue. Also, you can ohm out your spark plug wires to verify if they are all equal.

When i connect my colant temp sw my car stumbles?


The coolant temp sensor is shot. Replace it. When it is connected, it gives the ignition module erroneous temp readings, and computer reacts randomly.When sensor is disconnected the car behaves as if it was cold, and it runs steadily, but probably not burning efficiently, and more important, module detects the missing sensor, and turns on the check engine light.

Car stumbles, backfires until warm


You need to replace your distributor. There has been many problems with these. I had the same problem with my 1993 villager and had tried many different things and none worked. I went to a junk yard and got a used distributor and now it runs fine. I would try this before anything alse.
