    It could be your idle air control motor. Does the idle improve if you turn the steering wheel while starting your engine? I would also start inspecting your vehilce
    by checking your throttle body and cleaning it if it is dirty with carbon. How long has it been since you have had a tune-up with new wires, cap, rotor and plugs and both the air and fuel filters replaced?
