Stalling on Cold Start

I have a 2011 Overland with the Hemi and 3500 miles on it. It will sometimes run rough and/or stall on cold start up. The MIL will come on and stay on. After 3 or 4 drive cycles the MIL will go out. This has happened once a week for the past 3 weeks. The only codes the dealer could get was a misfire code. No other codes. They have no idea what to do. When the MIL is illuminated it will not go into ECO mode. Anyone else have this problem and possible causes?

Re: Stalling on Cold Start

Sounds like bad gasoline...or water in the gas. I would put some of the heet in the gas tank. If there's water in it then you have a partial block line possibly from freezing water. It maybe something else but that is what it sounds like to me.

Re: Stalling on Cold Start

Gas has been from 3 different sources over this period. Within 10-20 seconds or so it smooths out and runs great.
