My 2005 3.2 misfires some episodes when I'm driving and sets off the P0018 code and a cylinder or two misfire code.

It does so randomly -- for example, I just started it in 20F degrees and drove it to the gas station as it misfired. It sat for 5-10 minutes as I filled up, then ran normally for 30 minutes.

What's going on here? Why does it run well sometimes and not others and the computer thinks the problem is the camshaft / crankshaft position?

I've also seen "too lean" codes and one P0011, which is camshaft over position, but I only saw those once.

I don't hear any noises coming from the chain that would indicate it's bad.

I don't know where to proceed from here or what the diagnosis is...
