    Idle problem

    Yeah, another rough idle. Whenever I start the car, it'll die if I don't give it gas to keep the RPM's up. It idles very rough and it's very annoying. Also, it's important to know that it only does this in cold weather and when I'm first starting the car in the morning. Once it gets a little heat in it, it's fine. And unless the car sits and gets completely cold again, it's fine. So right now during the summer it's not a problem. I'm inclined to think that it's an intake gasket, but I'd like to get some opinions on this.

    sounds to me like it could be your fuel pump on the way out... Had this same problem too, swapped out the fuel pump and the problem was gone. Other than that the only thing i could think of would be a damaged spark plug or spark plug wire. I would check those before shelling out the money for a new fuel pump.

    Remove your throttle body and clean it along with the IAC...it could be sticking in the cold. Try all the easy stuff first..
