Vacuum leak, Injector not sealing off letting gas into the cylinder, Start of a blown head gasket leaking antifreeze into cylinder and sealing off as it warms up.

Thank you tuff4x4, I will check for vacuum leaks and injectors leaking. I have never over heated the motor and it doesn't use any antifreeze, but I will keep that in mind.
