Post 93 Mazda Protege problems... help :(

So i have a 93 mazda protege with the 1.8L sohc engine. it has a few problems.

One of the problems i want to figure out is; when i first start it up, it idles at 2000 rpms and stays there til it warms up.
When its really cold outside the idle will bounce back and forth from 1500 to 3000 rpms.
I'm just wondering why the idle is so eff'd up? Could it be the throttle pressure sensor? Or the idle sensor? Vacuum leak? I have no idea...

ANY help would be greatly appreciated!!!

i had a 99 ford escort auto . befor my car accident i was getin some weird issues like u seam to b havin. just see if u can pull any codes and go from there. mine was a idle sensor based on the code i pulled. i all so had a high idle and i was burning alot more gas driving around town. like i said just see if there is any codes u can pull. its a older car alot of crap can come up. for the most part i say drive it in to the ground dont dump any real money in to it.

Yeah i will try to get some codes from it at work but no check engine light is on maybe its burn out or something. I think its the idle sensor cuz that's the only thing that makes sense to me
