Happened to me too 3 times.
How cold was it?
High 30's first two times and 16deg. the third. The motor was cold on the 3rd time, warm but near the beginning of the drive the other times. I got no CEL's it is definitely not electrical, but what I'd call a hesitation or stumble in the motor. My car is at the dealer, now with a CEL, and I think the two are related and are the fault of the bad purge valve. That is my guess we will see.
I brought my car in complaining of this problem, and also had the CEL on for code P2006. The problem was, "IMRC switch was not contacting IMRC valve actuator lever." They made the modification and we will see if that fixed it. The reason I'm righting this here is that there is a good chance that this issues is being caused by this, and all 3's are having trouble with this and the purge valve.
