the ambient sensor what tells the ECU sees only a cold condition as the motor warms starts chokin with incorrect air/fuel ratio~

i dont smell raw fuel, it is a slight missfire, like it shuts off a cylinder for an instance and back on, but constant on both banks

no not RAW fuel...an uncomfortable air/fuel ratio which will foul plugs and run black~ perhaps it is an air temperature sensor---will not know until we have your diagnostic trouble codes read...get them at any autoparts store or get your very own OBD-II coder reader~

THE CODES THAT I GOT BEFORE CLEARING THEM WERE KNOCK SENSOR BANK 2 AND HEATER SENSOR BANK 2, CLEARED THE CODES, REPLACED ALL SPARK PLUGS, REPLACED RAFDIATOR CAUSE IT WAS LEAKING, STARTED VEHICLE AND HAS THE EXACT SYMPTOMS BEFORE DOING THE PARTS REPLACEMENT, CHECK ENGINE HAS NOT COME ON YET, AND NEVER GOT ONE FOR RANDOM MISSFIRE
