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

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
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.
I also have the same problem with my Skoda Octavia ambiente 2001 1.6ltr petrol. When the engine is cold, after putting the first gear i can hardly move and i have to push the gas pedal severally to enable me move. Kindly help.
