Put your hand on the coil after it shuts down, if its hot, it may be shorting out and not working till it cools off....I've seen this in the past with other cars

Could be any number of about 5 different things. Lots of stuff goes on during the warmup cycle. Could be the IAC unit sticking, could be a fuel problem, could be a spark problem, could be an ECU problem, could be a wiring problem.
