Every morning when I start my car, it goes like this
1. first time I start it, turns right off
2. second time I start it, it holds idle for like 2 seconds then turns off
3. third time I start it, it goes down to like 400rpm, thinks for a second or two, i have to give it gas, then it idles fine, any ideas, or suggestions? thanks

Try cleaning your Idle Stabilizer Valve (ISV). It may be dirty and sticking shut. Also check the micro-switch connections on the back of the throttle body. Make sure they are corrosion free.
