Hey my name is Jason check out your air idle control valve it could be stuck I just had the same problem with my Chevy s-10

I wonder if it could be the fuel pressure regulator


If your running fine when its warmed up it wouldn't be that your air idle control is right on carburater take air filter off take it try to clean with carb cleaner .
