My s15 did similar when it had moisture in the distributor...worth a quick look under the cap, dry thoroughly, clean contacts if necessary, replace rotor & condenser if they need it...mine had a cracked cap that was replaced as was the whole distributor shaft & everything ...yours could b just a bit of moisture there.
