Why does my car shake violently when engine is cold? on 1997 Honda Civic

When I start my car with the engine cold, it starts up no
problem. But as long as my engine is cold, when I shift
into first gear and step on the gas the car shakes
violently and barely moves forward. To get it to go forward
I really have to gun the gas pedal hard a few times then
I can shift into the other gears with no problem.
After I've been driving about 5 minutes and my engine
has warmed up I have no trouble at all moving forward
from a complete stop, no violent shaking.

You should check all the spark plugs and wires. I had the same problem with my Supra. You should also check for vacuum leaks. It may also be your TPS.
