Yes, It sounds like a coil is heating up and breaking down.

You can use a multimeter and perform the below test on the coil to determine which is acting up.

Coil is easy- 15 minutes. If you don't have a gapper use a business card- I was in the field and thought I'd go back and adjust it when I got home. That was 2 years ago and never got around to it...
