The car drove fine in the morning. At the end of the work day, I cranked it, it was fine for about a minute, and then the idling became progressively rougher. I thought the car would stall, but it did not. It was idling so rough that I was concerned that I would damage the car. We took it to the mechanic who diagnosed worn upper engine mounts. They were replaced, and problem fixed!
