96 Mystique - Start and stall when cold outside

Hello,

I have a 96 mystique and last winter my car would start and have a rpm scale from 2000 rpm's then drop to 500, this could happen for a bit then stall.

As a student on a budget I'm trying to do this myself, I cleaned the EGR but to no avail.

Also, passenger side floor gets wet when it rains, common problem?

One last question, after replacing drivers side axle, the traction control comes on spontaneously between the middle gears but not on high gears. Is there a different part # for a car with or without traction control? I am not sure if which I put in.

Thanks
Dan

Clean the IAC and MAF tosee if that helps. There's a special MAF cleaner in parts stores.
