Camry that's hard to start

1994 Toyota Camry
4 cyl.
114,000 miles

This morning when I tried to start my car, it took a couple of turns and a little push on the gas pedal to get it going. I just replaced the battery too. The problem seems to be with the engine. I can hear the starter spinning strong and the battery is new. Should I give it a standard tune-up with new spark plugs, wires, distributor, rotor, and all? I should also mention that I live in New Jersey and it has been about an average of 20 degrees for the past 3 weeks. But the coldness shouldn't be too much of a problem because my other car starts right up on the first turn.

A tuneup will never hurt and should be done. Barring that, start with my "The Basics" post below.

ISC motor sticking, not giving engine any "air". You gave it the "air" by touching the accel pedal.

Either replace it or remove it and clean it with throttle body cleaner.
