1998 toyota Corolla - Low Idle

when starting in cold weather, the car idles really low & sometimes stalls, I have to keep gas to it for about 45 sec. - 1 min. after that it will stay idling but very low.

I wouldn't worry about it.
Just press the gas very very lightly, enough to keep it running...
When that stops working, it's time to seek professional help.

You must be a genius. Either that or your response is unbelieveably dumb. I vote for dumb.
