Any number of things. What kind of maintainance has been done, ie: plugs, cap, rotor, wires, fuel filter, etc. Cold start valve, maybe (mine doesn't have one)? IAC valve dirty or malfunctioning? Dirty Air Flow Sensor or throttle body? Check your plugs first. See if it's getting gas. Maybe your fuel pump is going bad?
