However, they have never come back and the misfire ones do. Although according to my car doesn't have variable valve timing but I could have sworn I saw it when I had it apart.
No, you won't have TGV's, iirc. I was more so thinking along the lines that there might be a slight vacuum leak at idle when cold and it goes away as it warms because the heat causes the parts to expand and seals the leak. I should have been more specific. My apologies.
