seems like it could be an IACV, or a temp sensor. the computer uses the coolant temp sensor when you first start as the master sensor to judge how much fuel to let in, if its getting a skewed reading thats too cold your injectors are in what i like to call "toilet flush" mode and theyre dumping gas in, if its reading too hot your not getting any gas into the engine. IACV limits the air thats allowed in so that could be reading bad as well
