When cold start is on will make more fuel to the engine for warm up. Only makes sense that even after warm up it's still putting the extra fuel into the engine that a heat sensor is bad. Namely the one connected to the MAP. Use your head, not the mechanics with all they're test equipment that are checking the wrong thing. You've put out a lot of cash because they don't know what to check for and are putting YOU through this. They're in it for the money pal. Not to help fix your problem.

I have a 1991 pontiac trans sport with a cold start engine surge. At cold start up the engine will increase and decrease in the rpm and sometime die but ofter the van worms up it seems to run ok.

remove and clean IAC ( idle air control ), this is what controls idling on to days cars. if this does not help a lot, check or replace coolant tempurature sensor. it may be bad, if it is, it will think the engine is always warm and send wrong info to pcm. good-day ! and may god bless. you can also have a vaccumn leak ! if check engine light is on, get it scanned to know what area is causing the problem.

Truck starts ok idles and accelerate good when it is in parkand netral but when i put it in drive it wants to die and there is no acceleration.

sounds like you have a fouled idle air control valve . I know on the d 150 vans it is located on top at the rear of the engine . Un-plug the wire connector on the iac valve and spray the control valve with brake kleen till it is clean , shake the excess brake kleen out and should run like new .
