My friends 01 1zzfe celica will not hold idle at a cold start....I have to keep my foot on the gas to keep it from stalling....once the engine has warmed up I can release the gas pedal and it will run fine...the CEL is on but I/we cannot drive the car because it does not have any insurance or registration....any ideas what the problem could be...TIA

water temp sensor is bad/unpluged. maf sensor is really dirty. any number of things really. i bet the cel will let you know what it is.

Yep.....I might just have someone follow me closely up to the auto parts store and have it scanned....Did not want to get into trouble though....I do not know of anyone who has a scanner....I'll post the solution/codes 2morrow hopefully
