well it's kinda hard to explain, but here goes.

when i start the car it seems like it is fighting to stay on. if i get on the gas, it fights up to about 4000 rpm. from 4 to redline it revs fine. and after i redline it, it well idle and run fine. it only happens on a cold start. help cos im lost.

that sounds like a retarted vacum problem. ide go around and check all your hoses for tears/rips.
