well man i figured it out finally, it was a broken valve spring. bastard kept me working on it for like 2 weeks, finally found the issue, now its running fine. Hope you got yours working, or that i could help.

Im kinda in the same boat with my '99. Similar problem, but mine also starts hard. I was thinkin if the fan clutch was the problem could it cause a hard start? and also would a flex fan be an option? Didnt see the valve spring post till just now. Ill check that as well
