When I start the car up 1st thing in the morning or after it has sat for more than a 6 or so hrs I have a hard time keeping a decent idle. I start it and give it a super fast light tap on the gas to keep it running( multiple times) is the only way to keep it from shutting down. I leave for work around 5am so I'm conscience of disturbing the neighbors with multiple starts.
Once she does start and I'm driving it it sounds like a VW Beetle's exhaust (old school VW Beetle) with a slight sputter all through 1 gear, I 1st thought it was from a exhaust leak but since that was fixed it's still doing it.
Both issues are only when the engine is cold 1st start of the day, once I'm at work for a couple of hrs then leave and drive it's fine no starting issues and no sputtering.
Thanks on advance.

That's where I'd start also, then pull codes just to see if you have a sensor or switch that's not reading right. ECT sensor ???
