Idle problems

Hi I have a 1992 wrx and lately when i have tried to start my car it wont idle until the engine is warm enough to not stall itself, then when it's at idle and accelerated the revs drops and the car will stall itself. When sitting at idle for about 5 minutes the engine will then work normal and not stall when accelerated. Need help on what it might be. Any help would be greatly appreciated
