If you are still using the carb engine check the idle up, there is the carb's version of a fast idle control. Some carbs would have a lever that pushes the throttle a little higher during start up. There is a screw there that you can adjust.

If it is an EFI engine, if you are experiencing very cold temperature, your car maybe compensating.

1988 dodge omni sounds like it will start.... then won't. Positive battery terminal very hot. Rolled it and it started. Today won't start. Any suggestions?

Check the positive battery cable. Heat is a sign of a poor connection. If badly corroded, take off and clean it, also check other end where cable connects to starter. You may need a new cable.
