96 Olds Achieva Surges or stall when cold

Have a 96 Olds Achieva with the 2.4 L 4 cyl with about 90,000 miles on it. The problem is when the temp is below 45 degrees if you do not let the engine warm up for at least 5 minutes the engine will surge or even stall when first driving. Unfortunately the check engine light has not come on for this condition. Never a problem when the outside temp is above 45-50 degrees. Any ideas where to look? Figure if I take it to the garage without the check engine light on, they could just replace a bunch of sensors without knowing which one is the problem.
Thanks

Have Autozone run a free code check for you to see if anything comes up. Start there.
