Have a 2008 outlook that when its cold and you stop at a stop sign or light starts jerking like it wants to go. Last only 5 secounds or so then its good the rest of the day. Whats up with that?

How many miles? Have you replaced coil packs? Spark plugs? Used fuel injection cleaner (ever)?

Based on it occurring in a cold engine and under load, it could be dirty injectors, a misfiring plug and/or coil pack... how does the engine behave at start-up in Park? Does the idle fluctuate?

Wife just bought it a few months back so not sure of what has been done to it. Yes I have heard it in the driveway idling and sounded like it droped a cyl for about 5 seconds then cleared up. No codes to show a misfire. Gonna run some injector cleaner thru it and check on changing the plugs. It has 67,000 miles on it.
