[DML] Hard Start/ Bad Idle

    Hello All, 
          I have a problem with #5903. First off it's been about 2 years since I've really driven the car 
so when I got it out today and washed her up and took it a spin down the road I noticed a couple
things. 1st, the speedo isn't working now. I'm not too worried about that, I'll check the angle drive 
and lube it up and hopefully that'll be that. The biggest concern it when I start it. It doesn't want to
start very easily. I had to push down on the air meter and it fired right up but it didn't want to idle.
It was barely 500rpm and would just die if I didn't give it gas. I also didn't hear the frequency valve
buzzing like it should. I know it's been a while since I've driven it but I remember how loud the FV 
was when working. It seems to want to idle fine when it starts warming up. Sorry if this is too vague
and not enough info but any ideas of where to start?  I guess I should break out the Bosch K-Tronic  
tech manual huh? Sometimes it's easier asking first. Let me know if anyone has any ideas. I really 
want to get it reliable and drive it again. Thanks in advance for any ideas and tips.

                                                          Jason #5903
