Ok I'm taking my 2000 v6 in to a shop this week end because it starts very ruff. On a cold start it takes about 6 seconds of turning to finally start and it sounds a little ruff when it does start too, but after that it's fine. It has 51,000 miles on it. My only performance mods is a removed air silencer. What do you guys think the problem might be?

I never took had a tune up done since I had it or any thing like that had it for about 2 years. I keep up on the oil and oil filter though. I take it in for that and get the best.

I ment is the fuel filter just another word for oil filter, but I guess their different now... never heard of a fuel filter though.
