1985.5 944 Idle hunting when cold

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 1985; Total Mileage: 165000;

This 85.5 944 starts fine during moderate temperatures but hunts for the correct idle speed when first started in the mornings when the temperature drops to the mid thirtys. The idle stabilizes after being driven a few blocks and doesn't bother again until the next morning. The starter will sometimes kick back during these cold morning starts as though the timing is too fast. The starter, battery, and cables have been changed with in the last year.
