It is likely that it is just the idle control valve that is the problem, or it could be the coil being unhappy to operate when its cold.

yes likely the ICV as there is no cold start unit . now the Idle control valve is what i am still looking for but again .there are no telltale wires or a connector ; in all the engine seem to have a (1) a connector at the air flow unit and (2) another one at the bottom of the throttle plate ; the TPS unit. Both cleaned and re-connected .
Both the temp senssors are new .

Try the UK site here...they will be able to tell you where your ICV is as well as giving you other usefull information.
