When I start the engine in the morning, it wants to kick back as if it is trying to backfire once, then continues to crank and starts right away. This only happens when the weather starts to turn cool. I had the problem last winter, no problem this summer, and it's starting to happen again. The temp in the garage when this started happening again was in the 50 degree range.

I thought possibly the timing belt tensioner had lost tension. I replaced the belt and tensioner a couple months ago, so that hasn't resolved the issue. I suspect the ECU. Has anyone seen this problem?
