This sounds like your valve clearances are going out of adjustment.

Unless you have done something recently to the carbs. or the bike has been standing I wouldn't suspect them to be the cause of your difficulties. It's easy to think the carbs. are the culprit because however hard you try to adjust the choke you cannot get even running when starting and soon she is likely to start stalling at traffic lights etc.

Think what i would try first is a fuel additive to see if you possible might have gotten a little moisture or dirt in tank , I like sea-foam brand available @ advance auto or other auto stores but i would try this first and see results , black plugs could mean rich mix not enough air or moisture in fuel the latter is easiest to eliminate

Hard starting, rough idle when cold, then smooth running when warm


Need year/make/model/mileage of vehicle to provide a more specific set of troubleshooting steps.

When was the last tune up? Hard starts when cold are usually caused by fouled spark plugs, worn plug wires, or weak ignition coils. Fuel systems are not as effected by temperature changes as the ignition components.

Tuned up car changed 02 sensor full tank of fuel still running rough


Oxygen sensor only report the condition of the engine the rough running condition can range from a worn sparkplug wires to worn sparkplugs to valve problems to injector problems. with the cadillac deville a tune up should be the first attempt to smooth the rough idle with the inspection of the cap and rotor cap and rotor do have a tendancy to arc internally and create misfire so does sparkplug wire that can leak spark voltage to ground and create misfire. the spark plug wire especially if they are brittle and hard can create issues

Car idles and runs rough intermittently after engne is warm.


it could be plugs and or high tention leads, causing missfire best way to check these is better at night open the hood of the car, run engine and see if you are getting a loose spark, that will be your high tention leads it could also be that when they get hot, they expand and start reducing the power of the spark to the plugs if you find that these will need replacing, to test spark plugs, get a pair of pliers and preff a pair of rubber gloves, pull the leads off each plug one at a time, if there is no change on one you pull of, that plug needs replacing, continue till you have checked all of them, hope this helps

97 z-24 rough idol when cold/runs better when warm


The most common problem is a partially clogged injector. They should be cleaned about once a year. Also the coil housing is known for shorting out between cylinders on your engine. The reason that its worse with the AC on is because the AC compressor is adding a load to the engine. You should probably take it to the shop and have it diagnosed soon before the misfire damages the catalytic converter.
