Possibly the ECU faulty. Or any the several sensors in line in the intake, the IAC, MAF.. Or just the fact you pump the pedal...The ECU 'knows' what fuel/air/ mix for a cold start or warm start, and you should not touch the gas pedal when starting.

It is strange, they are meant to start without pumping, that was the old days of carburetors, and modern EFI engines are apples and oranges in many ways. Sorry.... I tried
