You might need to check your battery

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

on the back of the engine are some vacuum lines that get damaged.either that or the throttle position sensor is not working properly.it is located on the throttle body.
