Is the check engine light on?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes for multiple misfire I replaced all spark plugs, I believe that's from it being cold in the morning and it running sluggish untill it gets hot

Ok what i recommend is that you clean the throtle body plate and also have the fuel pressure checked make sure the fuel pump is not starting to go out they are very common to cause this issue before failing . I hope this helps please dont forget to provide feedback thank you
