Any one else have this problem? After the car has sat for a few hours like over night or at work for 8 hour, it tries to die when you put it in gear and go, you have to really give it gas as you let out on the clutch. After she is warm it is fine. Any tips to fix this?

I've got a diesel but it sounds to me as if your electronics need a tickle up. Orioginally we all had manual chokes to overcome the problem (richen the mixture when cold), then we had automatic chokes taht did it for us, but now everything is controlled by computer and I suspect that it either isn't figuring out it's as cold as it is OR it's not doing the right thing with the info. Suspect it's a tune-up job with somebody who can "talk" to the little electric man hiding under the bonnet. I believe he's the same guy as turns the light on in the fridge when you open the door ;)

Cheers
