As of yesterday my coupe has started the following symptoms,

When started cold the engine runs fine for 15-20 seconds, then for no reason
it stumbles onto 3 cyls. No matter how many times i turn it on/off it will
not fire the other 2 cyls. After 5mins of so running just when the water
temp gauge starts to move it recovers and runs smooth on all 5 cyls again.
Any ideas?

When its running on three cyls it stinks of sunburnt fuel, so there is fuel
getting in there. Both times i unpluged/repluged all HT and sensor
connections to no avail.
