Could be a bad coolant temp sensor. If the car thinks its warm it'll be injecting less fuel at idle then when it's cold, but in reality the car is actually cold. The problem will go away once the motor is actually warm. Once you can get it to start just unplug the coolant temp sensor and see if it makes a difference.
