When the car gets warm, the revs drop.
You might need to increase the idle speed, or you might have a faulty ignition coil.

You need to remove the upper rad hose and the battery.
Then, use a torx to remove the 6 screws (hard to get at) which will remove the EBTCM from the brake modulator. You also must disconnect the two electrical connectors (the big one has a slide tab).
There are places you can send the module to and rebuild with warranty. I took a module from a 99' and installed it in my wife's 01'. Now the speedo, odometer, cruise and power steering work perfect and no TCM / ABS light.

It sounds like the misfire monitor turned the check engine light on. What you are saying is the vehicle ran rough when started cold and as it warmed,it straightened out, but the check engine light stayed on. If what was causing the miss has corrected itself,you can try disconnecting the battery and let it sit for about ten minutes. Then reconnect the battery.This may allow the PCM to reset and the light to go out.
If the concern happens again tomorrow,you need to have the code pulled so you can get to the cause.
If you want to send me the code,I will be happy to look it up and give you some information. If you decide to do this,send me the engine size too.
Good luck,I hope this helps,Chuck

If the engine cranks but fails to fire, the car may be flooding due to a failed temperature sensor. There are several, but the most likely problem would be the water temperature sensor.
If the engine fails to crank when hot, the starter motor is failing and will need to be replaced.
