2005 Five Hundred starting issue! HELP

hey guys im new to the forum and ive been searching on this problem my girlfriends five hundred has been having..

here in New Brunswick Canada, its been cold for the past couple of months, but mild recently (up to +10c)

when we start the car it the morning it turns over fine (just replaced battery)

but the second it starts, idles rough for a second and stalls...

to get it going she hold the gas to the floor and it starts (obviously not the best thing to do)

any info or a link to the solution to this would be awesome, thanks!

Might be worth changing the engine coolant temperature sensor .

Try cleaning the throttle body and IAC

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
