IN THE MORNINGS WHEN IT IS COLD I GO AND START MY CAR AND WHEN I START IT SEEMS LIKE IT WANTS TO CUT OFF. I HAVE TO WAIT TO MAKE SURE THAT IT DOESNT SHUT OFF, AND THEN WHE IT IS WARM IT SEEMS OKAY.

You may have a bad IAC ( idle air control) but try cleaning the throttle body first. Remove the intake snorkel, have someone hold the throttle wide open for you and scrub the back side of the throttle plate and surrounding bore with an old tooth brush and some carb cleaner. Be sure to spray some into the small holes next to the throttle plate. That should help stabilize the idle. If it still has a problem, replace the IAC.
