Does sound like IAC......try tapping it a few times with a wrench or something and see if it clears up any. If it does, bingo - thats your problem.

This is a different issue then the IAC and I dont see it as an issue at all? My car sits in a cold barn right now and does the same thing. I wouldnt worry about it, I just start it and if it starts hestating I shut it off and start it again and its fine...Oh and i have a BRAND NEW IAC so that isnt the issue

I agree the IAC is prob the problem, also you could try pouring a bottle of rubbing alcohol in a full tank of gas, that will get rid of any water in your gas ...
