Also with the Bigger engine, like in the 535 and the 540, they start rougher when they are cold or when you dont leave the key in postion 2 long enough!! Its nto good for it when you just turn the key straight from nothing all the way to starting it, let the computers turn on by waiting in the position before starting for a few seconds!! If this doesnt help then the options above are a good bet on whats wrong with it.
