My car had been idling very rough and would die 2 or 3 times on cold starts before finally being ready to go. Well, I discovered that my PCV valve hosing had come unhooked! Once plugged in my baby was idling great and fired right up on the next cold start. Just one of many ideas for any one with this same problem to check out.
