I have a EL XR8 and when its cold, like in the morning it runs really rough and stalls, maybe 2 or 3 times, but if u keep the revs up it doesnt. Once it gets warm its fine. Any help would be appreciated, have recently put new dizzy cap, rotor button and spark plugs on it.

I have had a similar problem on my EF and replaced the ISC. This seems to have fixed it.

A stuffed coolant / inlet temp sensor can do the same...

Pull the codes, let the car tell you whats wrong.
Buy a 12v test lamp and do a search for how to do it.

Check the EGR valve. If they leak at the diaphragm they`ll stall and run rough cold.
