    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop

    Half way through the winter my 04 ARC when first starting her up in the morning would run rough for a good 10-20 seconds or until I gave it some gas and the idle would immediately clean itself up and stay that way for the remainder of the day. I could turn the car on and off multiple times...
