Rough start up when cold and cel comes on
I bought my 2003 6i with 68500 and had a misfire problem that occurred only on first start of the day after its been sitting during a cold night, had fuel injectors serviced changed spark plugs and got new ignition coil the problem went away for awhile and the weather warmed so it was starting fine.
The other morning I went to start it and it turned over with a little bit of struggle almost like it was stuck and gave a clicking type noise with some vibration after that it started perfectly the rest of the day but the cel light stayed on. This morning it had soild vibration and some weird noises while trying to start. I'm new to all this so any pointers or advice on how to fix this besides having an auto shop read the code as a misfire and telling me they need to-do an in depth inspection for hundreds of dollars ??
Any help would be great! I love my 6i and don't want to see it slowly start going down!
