[DML] re newbie and another starting/idle problem



Hi all

steve here from the UK. imported my car about a year ago and still 
trying to get her roadworthy!.
car was stored 12+ years

have replaced tank, pump, fuel filters, screen etc. flushed system 
through with petrol/cleaner. new battery fully charged.

i haven't checked injectors, plugs, distributor etc.

now car will start after 5 seconds of cranking when cold, has 
erratic idle that seeks, then will try to stall but can be 'saved', 
by pushing the accelerator (gas) pedal.
then if run for 5 minutes will not start untill left 1/2+ hours.
now could do with a few pointers if anyone can help!!
i am assuming cold start valve is OK?
was looking to start by changing the 02 sensor, and check all earth 
points?

regards all

Steve
VIN 1621
