Default 3.0 Manual - Rough Idle and Slow Start

#1: Starting Delay
When the truck is cold, it can take up to 20 sec to get it to start but it will start almost immediately when warm. I used to have a 3.0L Automatic Edge and it never did anything like this. I'm wondering if it's normal for the 3.0L XLT 5-speed or if something could be going on.

#2: Rough Idle
I might just be paranoid since it's a new purchase and all, but while at an idle, she feels like she's missing every of often. Since it smogged a friend told me not to worry about it, but I just want to confirm that it's okay.

Default Re: 3.0 Manual - Rough Idle and Slow Start

My truck just started doing the delayed start too. Rough idle has been constant since i bought it used.

Mine is auto so i dont think it has to do with the tranny.

There an Idle control unit?
