Sounds like you may have a dirty throttle body by a can of carbon cleaner remove the intake pipe of at the throttle body see if it is black greasy spray the t/b with the cleaner and clean with a soft rag then spray the rest of the can through the t/b while engine is running at about 2000rpm you will find it will idle a lot smoother cold or hot.reards agwbk
