I have a similar problem. Start with the cheap stuff like spark plugs and wires. Then check your fuel filter. After that, check your MAP sensor, and or fuel pump. Also your TPS (throttle position sensor) I know this problem is very common. I have searched everywhere, and there is no one specific solution. Good Luck!

first the cam sensor shouldn't be upside down from the 95. they both should be with the plug facing down. they 95 CAS has a different plug than the 99 CAS. the 95 has round pins and the 99 has flat pins.
----------------------------- also the 95-96 relays are opposite the 97-99
--------------------- besides that it could be the ecu. i also have heard of the locating pin on the intake cam shearing off, allowing the gear to turn with the timing belt without the actual camshaft spinning.
I have a 95 eclipse and had the same problem. Replaced the coil, plugs, wires. I had it taken to 3 garages before I found out. It's a problem with the anti-theft system. I don't have the exact location, but the guy who finally found out the problem said it was under the front bumper. Sorry I can't be more specific, but I know how puzzling the problem is. I spent a good 700 dollars and 4 months on two "I don't know"s and a little under $200 to actually get it fixed.
The signs you mention 'putt putt' are normally casued by excessive fuel, something approaching a flooded engine.
If you do this with the hood open, you will probably smell raw gasoline.
A cold engine needs an extra shot of fuel to fire off but once warm, it gags on it.
I don't know your car so I can't tell you what controls the extra gas for cold starts; it seems to be doing it whether cold or not.
I guess I would first check any electronic temperature sensor which could be located in the cooling system or intake or exhaust system.
Your new computer is getting the same wrong information as the old one.
