Please keep us informed.

I have stuggled with roughly the exact same problem. My idle is fine cold but feels like it is skipping once warm (very rough to the point of almost dying). I suspect head gasket leak/seep as my coolant is pressurised overnight and understand that head gasket replacement is basically a maintenance item on these cars at 150-175K.

If you find a cure please let us know as I would love a simple fix for the problem as I evaluate options on the head gasket issue.

P.S. Curious if your coolant stays under pressure overnight.
