car detail then car problem

So after I had the guys detail my car it sat around for 6 hrs or so then I tried to start it and it ideled rough and the cel light came on and a few seconds later it ideled normally. So I raned an erand and the car worked fine until this morning when it did it again. Did the guys put water into the exhaust are any sensors damaged? The car runs great without any problem exept at start up. Any help would be apreciated. 2004 2.7 speed yellow 30kmiles.

Try cleaning your Mass Airflow Sensor. My 03 Boxster S had a rough idle when I bought it. I cleaned the MAS and that solved the issue. Good Luck.

Well, from what I learned through reading the past postings on this forum, just clean it with electric connector cleaner found in hardware stores.
