Default I have a 2004 Honda odyssey and it has 170000 miles on it ?

For the past while I have had to start my car 15 min before I leave somewhere because if the car isn't warmed up once I try and leave it will stall and keep stalling until it's warmed up. If I even try and hurry up and drive while it's cold once I stop it just stalls out right away. The car runs perfectly when it's warmed up. I replaced the idle arm control valve but no luck. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem. It gets very annoying. It runs very rough and the idle goes down and eventually stalls out if I try and drive before it's warm. It will not stall if I keep my foot on the gas and keep driving until it's warm but once I stop it just stalls. I have a good mind for this so I'm not afraid to take stuff apart so if you know what this is please help me out. I was looking and thinking it might be the coolant temperature switch but please help thank you

It probably needs a new thermostat.

When is the last time you had the fuel injection system cleaned? Sounds as if you might have a bunch of gunk in the system. The price of a system cleaning is around $75.00 and takes about 1 hour. Well worth the cost.
