[DML] Fuel plunger sticking

Well, Well, Well...

I started my car this morning and it did its usuall BS (see below) 
but this time I decided to go back to the engine after I got it 
running but before I could accellerate (it would die if I depressed 
the accellerator) I turned the spindle while slightly depressing the 
air meter and the thing un stuck from a semi closed position! Now, so 
far it has only happened when the car is cold. Is it possible for 
heat to cause the plunger to free up? I assume I need to clean the 
plunger. I am worried that the PO put a scratch on it, if he did it 
needs replacing right?

this could potentially explain both of my problems right?:

1) engine fires up and dies immediately taking several attempts 
before it will stay running. 

2) Engine will not accellerate once it is running, if the throttle is 
depressed the engine will die.

It must seem like my car is a real basket case but it really isn't, 
or thats what I keep telling my wife! :0)
