    I'm concerned about a charging system issue since you also have the dash gauge issue. Have the alternator and charging system checked.

    Alternatively, if that is an unrelated issue, you could have an air intake leak or sticking idle air control valve causing air to get into the engine cold which will require you to give it fuel to keep it going.
