On a dead cold start the car will crank up normally. Punch the gas once, and the rpm's just stay around 1300 for a couple seconds before rising like normal. If you don't punch it a couple times, then the car will fall flat on its face when you try to accelerate the first time. After the first shift, it clears up. Almost like the engine's flooded.
