comment Misfire the next morning if car runs only for 15 seconds
I would guess that any oil on the cables would eventually seep through the protective covering, and cause a short on the wires. At first startup, this would cause the wires to heat up and eventually burn off whatever minute amount of oil was causing the short. After this, the car would run normal. After letting the car sit for a bit, however, the oil has a chance to seep back through the plastic covering and cause a misfire again. I should emphasize that this is purely speculative, however. Replace those cables!
