Question about 1999 Toyota Corolla
Could be a crankshaft position sensor (not starting well is one of the symptoms) and or the Idle air control (IAC) (found under the throttle body intake and requires R&I of throttle body). You can test the Idle control with a simple test found in the Haynes repair manual. On a side note, I just replaced my fuel pump today and with a 1999 corolla, make sure to replace the half circle black fuel filter the pump and gas pressure regulator mounts into as well. Auto-Parts places all think the filter is in the pump itself on that year, but it is a special order through a dealership that should be done at same time as pump.

Try using some engine cleaner.. "Sea Foam" works best in my opinion. just find the brake booster hose unplug it... turn the car on and let the hose **** about half a can into the motor.... then plug the hose back up and pour the rest into your gas tank.... let the car run for ten minutes... and see if this helps your problem. If it doesn't atleast you cleaned your motor out some and can feel better about that, and you can try to find another source of your problem.. maybe the rotor inside the distributor cap is not making a good connection for some reason in the cold try getting that replaced along with a set of spark plugs and wires if that hasn't been done already.. its a fairly easy fix and inexpensive as well.

There could be several things that could cause this issue to happen. It sounds like you may have a faulty MAF (mass air flow) sensor, or a throttle position sensor, but it could also be a faulty crankshaft sensor, or even a camshaft sensor. I would recommend that you have a diagnostic ran, that will save you time, and money, and will take the guess work out of the repair.
