Hopefully you can help by making a video or just a quick answer thank you in advance.

Well the throttle seems to be sticking when it's cold metal shrinks and I'm assuming somehow the throttle is sticking. I would clean the throttle really well and pray it isn't just worn and need complete replacing of throttle assembly
