    i have a 96 cx hatch wit a h22a motor. im having a cold start up problem. car will not idle on its own, have to give it gas for a little bit until the idle holds, while im giving it gas it feels as if its not firing on all 4 cylinders kinda like if you were to run with a plug wire removed. when its idling theres this strange gargling noise, sounds like its coming from the intake but not sure. the whole time the idle goes up and down from 1400-1000k rpm and eventually the car will bog and cut out. i try to start her up again and it just cranks and cranks but it wont turn over unless i give it gas. when it does turn over it just cuts out right away. i've replaced the fuel filter, i can hear the fuel pump prime like it should. fuel pressure is set at 45psi when its idling on its own it fluctuates from 45-50 psi back and forth. Any thought or input would be greatly appreciated.
