I've had  a nagging problem ever since I got this car. When I start it 
when the  engine's cold and let it idle, it either shuts off or idles 
like it's  about to shut off. If I rev it up a few times or just hold the 
pedal down  about a quarter of the way, after about 15-20 seconds, it 
will idle  normally. I've tried all the obvious things like timing, 
plugs, plug  wires, idle setting, etc. It's no big deal, I'm just 
wondering what's  causing it.

It sounds like a stuck closed AAR (Aux Air Regulator). It acts like a choke 
 on a carbed car, by allowing more air into the engine when cold. It should 
 normally close when the temp gets to 85* (I think), which means not very 
long in  the summer.
