The simptoms you are describing sound like the catalitic converter, that will choke the car and potentally get better as the car heats up. advance auto will scan the car codes for free. a quick check is to start the car and check the exhaust flow out the tail pipe there should be a fair volume of exhaust gasses at high idle when you first start the car at cold.
