Cold Start

I have an 04 Disco II 4.6. It is getting colder here at night. My Rover will start and idle at first around 900 rpms, but after a few seconds will drop down very low, like 300-200, then if I don't tap the gas it will stall. After tapping the gas the idle will go back up, but then drop down again. After about a minute of doing that it will smoothen out.
Any suggestions on what to check?

I had the same issue and switched to a lighter oil. Also make sure your air filter clean. I got a tank of bad gas last Winter and it was a pain figuring out that was the issue.
