Sounds like a bad throttle positioning sensor. Does the check engine light come one? I'm willing to bet it's the throttle pos sensor. Go to Autozone and have them run the trouble code if the check engine light is on, it's free :-)

Check the ECU engine temperature sensor. If it thinks the engine is hot, it will struggle to run when cold.

Stalls at idle no fluxuation in voltage at iac


It is most likely the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.
The valve is supposed to close when the car is idling and open other wise.

Inspect it / Replace it.

Hope this helps!
