When I try to warm up the engine of my 05 MCS in the morning, it will suddenly go to way down in rpm, sometimes it even die on me. My buddy's 04 MCS got the same experience, anyone experience the same? Any suggestion?

Thanks!

Thanks for your opinion. I talk to one of my friends, his MCS got the same problem, he took his to the dealer to re-program, or may be it's a software upgrade, then, it is better now. May be I should call the dealer and see what they say.

Thanks for your help! :)

Thankfully, my '05 MCS has not had this problem. It took the dealer 2 weeks to get rid of the hideous screech, but it's always idled fine. To fix the screech - changed pulley, belt, tensioner (twice) and alternator.
