Does this only happen on the first start of the day or when the vehicle engine is cold from sitting, and then when it warms up its ok?

also is this a 4 or 6 cylinder engine?

Well, i thought it may have just been on a cold start but if it does it even when hot, its going to be hard to diagnose online. BUT i will open your question back up for others in case they can help.
