Hello trevor
Sounds like the problem could be related to you coolant temperature sensor, this tells the ecu what temperature the engine is at and adjusts fuel accordinly. Have known the sensors to give incorrect value to ecu thus under fueling from cold, ( ie thinks you have a hot engine) does not always put fault in ecu memory.
The sensor is located near the top hose inlet onto the cylinder head. It will possibly have a black or white two pin block conector on the sensor. There are two sensors avaliable one white/one black make sure you get the correct one for your car.
Hope this helps,good luck mate.
