Over the course of about 3 months that's what mine did ... then it trended into a rough idle, then more hesitation at low rpms - it would kind of pause, then it died during start up once, then a few days later I got all of the lights.

Turned out to be a failing bank 1 throttle actuator valve - they have to pull the manifold to get at it.
