[DML] Re: Update on rough start issue...still need help please

Check the functioning of the "hot spark" relay and related 
connections. That is the one mounted on the firewall in the engine 
compartment near the resistor pack. The active wires are blue/yellow 
and white. The relay is not on any wiring diagrams for some reason. 
Without proper function of that circuit the symptom you describe is 
a common one.
