Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I start car after sitting, runs very rough almost to a piint where stalling.  Once warms up, not rough when idle, but when driving at speeds over 25 MPH (happens usually on freeway), I can feel intermittent, random hesitations with engine.  No codes.  Dealer wants to start swapping stuff out.  Any help?
