SOURCE: nissa pickup wont idle at all
Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed and stall, rough idle and engine hesitation, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Your problem is most likely the air/fuel mixture at start-up. As the engine is cold the air is heavier and thus needs more fuel to obtain the correct mixture. If the computer is sound, you may want to go to a local parts store and get the codes read,. The FUEL PRESSURE REGULAOR, could be malfunctioning. Also, chack the MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor. The COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR could also not be functioning. On your model there are TWO. One powers the guage, and the other is read by the computer to set the mixture. The spark plugs may be dirty, old, or too cold for your model. At start-up the engine needs a hotter spark to ignite the fuel, as at start-up the mixture is heavier and if the spark is "cold" the fuel isn't burned completely and this will cause a miss, as the engine loads up on unburnt fuel.
