I have a recent problem which seems to be getting worse. After the engine warms up starts to "miss time" or what I think could be a miss. If you use the following terminology for the sound.. r = normal quite smooth rev, m = miss or very unsmooth rev, jurky when stopped at lights, with car body shaking left to right.

rrrrrrrmmrrrrmrmrrmrmrmrmrrrrrrrmrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrmrrrrrrrrrrrrmrmrmrmrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrmrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrmrr

Get the picture?

Engine starts perfect when cold and only exhibits this when temp gets to about 80 on the temp dial. Hard to start when engine warm or if started before 6-8 hours after last start. The uneven rev is immediate in this case.

Any help would be great.

cheers
