Problem solved!

It turns out after two treatments (one really) of injector cleaner I have solved the cold start misfire issue. For the past several days, and some were quite cold, the X has started and run...

The X has 294,5XX miles. I just got it in November. I don't know a lot about the history and even less about the fuel system. I like the idea of cleaning and testing the injectors though.

That is good to know and much less cumbersome than pulling out the code reader. I'll give it a try in about an hour when I leave for work. But if the SES is tripped the injector will stay off until...

I looked at the grounds, they are firm and dry, the wells are dry also. IIRC the misfires I have been in 2,3,4 and/or 3,4,5. It seems to always include #3 and never 1 or 6 though. :dunno:

Would this be enough of a misfire to trip the SES light and make the DME shut that cylinder off? If it doesn't smooth out on its own and trips the SES, I have to clear the codes for the misfire(s)...

I think this is exactly it, because it starts with a minor misfire but it won't trip the SES light until it has run a while or the misfire is bad enough to make running very rough.
