First of all I have been having a number of odd issues here lately. Plugs were replaced not even 2k miles ago. COP's are fine. When I first start my truck up in the morning after its been sitting all night, it runs like a bag of ***, but not right away. As soon as the needle from the cold mark starts to move up, the truck begins to idle rough sitting still, and when you move it makes a sound as if it were missing.
