im having problems with my 02 when i start it when the engine is cold the engine kind of lunges (revs up to where it should idle then almost dies then revs up ect. untill i push the gas pedle), when its colder like 20 deg or less i have to hold the gas pedle for like 5 sec or it will rev up and die. but when the engine is warm it doesnt have any problems just wondering if anybody had any ideas for me be for i bring it to the dealer.

Injector or hpop issue maybe? Best to let it sit at the dealer till the engine is cold so they can put the computer on it before they crank it up. Overnight is ideal... or u can just move south to warmer weather!
