Question Cold starting trouble...

A 03 Sentra SE/R 2.5L 4 cyl. engine. When I start the car in the cold or the garage for the first it doesn't want to stay running. I have tried to push the gas pedal down a little once it starts to keep the rpm's up so it won't stall out, but there is a pause of nothing then the rpm's rise as I am lifting my foot after depressing the pedal a little. Once the car is warm there doesn't seem to be a problem. Any ideas, cause the winter still has a long way to go?

Thanks

On the cold days, keep the throttle 1/4 to 1/3 open while starting the car, release the throttle right after engine started. This method applied to ALL NISSAN model year.

Would this qualify for fuel injected vehicles (mine is)? I thought you were not suppose to touch the throttle during starting in f.i. vehicles. I only use it after the engine has started.

Yes it is, this came from Nissan Bulletin for cold start on winter and it's applied to ALL NISSAN .

Question

That's a new one to me, too, troops.
Sounds very much like a badly carboned-up idle control valve, which seems to
be a particular p/a on certain toyotas.
I was ready to preach a whole sermon on cleanin' out one of those buggers.
