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

Spark plugs and wires are new as of last August, only have 3k miles on them. All vacuum 
leaks have been fixed as all hoses have been replaced. Car idles at 800rpm now which 
never happened before (due to the vacuum leaks). Air filter was replaced last month. 

Once the car is warm the motor does start up right away. Haven't checked the gas mileage 
in a while, but during acceleration the car seems to hesitate the slightest.
