Default Questions

A little more detail would be helpful to be able to understand just how this condition develops and resolves. Does the rough idle start imediatly or does the engine have to warm up for a minute or two and then become rough? Does the rough idle last only for 15 seconds or sometimes longer? Is there any associated noises with the intake, perhaps a loud sucking noise? Does it happen whenever the engine is started "cold" or when worm as well?
