check for vacuum leaks first ... clean the MAF, and IAC valve, check/replace airfilter....

as said before, it COULD be the beginnings of VANOS seals failure ... you can unplug the intake side vanos solenoid and if the problem stops, then that is likely your cause...

do you have any cold startup idle issues?

what's going on here? Idle control valve? give me some ideas guys. thanks.
