Exclamation HelP! Starting Problems

Hey guys, a noob to the subaru forum, but have had lots of fun workin on Joncas' subie (dunno if you guys remeber his supercharger set up)...anyways, just picked up a 1994 Subaru Impreza L, fwd, 4 dr, white etc. Picked it up for 600 bucks, with a new battery and starter freshly installed.

Since i picked up the car, it has struggled now and then on cold starts. So me thinking its not that big of a deal ignored it, until now, where everytime you try to start it cold it will not start. I sit in the car and keep cranking it for it to finally catch, idle hops around, if you touch the gas it stalls out, car shakes, etc etc etc. Finally after like 5 min of this randomly idle, it shutting down, me restarting, it will catch, go to a normal 2500rpm cold idle and run fine. If i press the gas at all during this start up it will stall the car out immediately. Also i have a perminent CEL thrown, which is crazy annoying with the fans that constantly stay on....

Once the car is up and running it seems to be offly junpy on the throttle like letting go and pressing the gas, which make shifting jerky and normal driving a little rough. This is not a big concern, its the starting that is. Here is what i have done so far with Joncas' help....I cleaned out the IAC valve, reset the ecu, still got nothing, and we played with the idle to see if we could hold it up any higher. I changed the air filter, oil, plugs wires etc. I have read about the coil packs on subie's being a constant prob, didnt know if i had to check the connection on this at all....

So guys, what should i do. Winter is comming, I really enjoy the car besides this small issue, and I am not afriad of it not starting when snow hits. Thanks a lot

Matt

Info on pulling codes, on a 94 you can do this yourself without a scanner-

If the fans are always on that may be a sign of a bad coolant temperature sensor which will definitely cause hard starting and poor running.
