Im not sure if my diesel is running bad or if it just needs to warm up. Sometimes when i start it, it tries to die. It almost acts like its cold but it isnt. Not sure what it is? Anyone have any ideas? As soon as i let it sit for a few minutes, its fine. I may just be being too picky.

It sounds like your idle is too low. It should be 800 RPM with the AC on and, if you have an auto trans, the trans in gear after the engine warms up.
