I would like to check fuel pressure and maybe volume. Get the datastream as well.

You can try changing the fuel filter. A very dirty filter can disrupt flow and volume at start-up when they are starting to plug-up. You can also try cleaning the IAC (idle air control) to see if that helps.

ANSWER by on June 12, 2013
Cold start morning roughness that clears up... possible leaking injector (over night or if you let it sit for a while), possible head gasket issue (coolant leaking into cylinder), possible oil leaking past valve seals (hence oil fouled plug until it clears up. Check coolant level, has it dropped at all? Leaking fuel injector has to be tested with fuel pressure tested and some other stuff. The leaking valve seals... look at the exhaust, is there any coloration during the rough running? Black, white, blue? - Keep me in the look.
