Got this problem when starting the car after it has been staanding all night or all day

When I start it it starts fine as soon as I pull any power down to move the car in forward or reverse it seems to have no power and chugs along, if I rev it abit it is OK, if I stop at a junction and pull off slow it does the same

After about half to a mile down the road the car is fine

It has had new HT leads, throttle body and plugs,

Has anyone got any ideas what it could be as I have had enough now:banghead:

By the way it is a 1999 2.3 VR5 done 100K miles

there are no code showing up

update

Just found that the header tank is leaking on to a what looks like a electrical unit with a black and brown plugs going into it underneath the header tank

What is this electrical unit? and could it be related to my misfire when cold due to water damage
