Anyone experiencing an occasional rough idle upon start-up? It seems to be when the engine is cold (30 degrees outside), and also is accompanied by a heavy puff of white smoke. Rough idle last about 15 seconds and then is fine. This has only happened about half a dozen times over the last couple months, but concerning none the less. I had a 94 with 160000 miles that never had this issue. I have seen threads discussing white smoke with synthetic oil (which I switched to 8000 miles ago), but nothing difinitive. Ideas? I know what's going to happen when I take it to Ford..."sorry, could not duplicate"

Thanks in advance for thoughts

I don't experience a rough idle, but I have noticed the car will wiggle slightly when I start it. The driver's side seems to rise up a bit then settle right back down. After that, the idle is fine so it's probably not related to your problem but I'm wondering if you or anyone else has experienced this too?
