The black sludge on bottom of engine is burnt oil. Scrape it off and see if it builds up again. Could have a leaking oil pan gasket. I would change oil and have a engine cleaner used to remove engine sludge. I believe engine runs rough when cold is because of sludge buildup and when it gets warm the oil moves more freely

did the doors normally lock when you started driving and unlock when you parked. (automatic feature)
