Sounds like the injectors; if they are the original Multitecs they are garbage, especially when warm...they can be tested though before replacing them just in case

replace fuel filter,run a can of sea fome fuelinjector cleaner in a tank of gas.dose it have a ses light on.

As far as I know they are the orig I have had the car since 99 and it had 92,000 mi on it then and I have have not changed them so I will get them checked thanks

Sometimes the coil under the distributer go's bad and it will give prob with idling but as joe said the original factory injectors are junk.
