Q: rough idle when cold on 2004 Honda Pilot

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
When I start my pilot in the morning, the idle is rough and could stall until it warms up

I would have your valves checked. I had the same thing happen with my Prelude. Cold start it ran like crap for 1 minute and then smooth as silk. I had 1 tight valve.

This engine has an idle air control motor that could be functioning incorrectly. I see tight valves affecting idle and emissions as well.
