2001 Solara 3.0. 200,000 miles.
Car runs good when warm. Summer time starts great. Now that its cold in Wisconsin. It will start really hard. Will just crank to begin with. Pump gas at it will sort of backfire a little. Then starts and dies. Restart same way and it will idle low. 500 rpm. If you try giving it gas it stalls immediately. After only a minute you can rev it up and it runs great. Once warm it has noproblem idling. I replaced fuel filter. Cleaned mass air flow sensor. Timing belt replaced 2 yrs ago. I see other sites talk about a cold start injector. I dont see one?

The 1MZ-FE V6 in your Solara does not have one.

These symptoms are what my Avalon did when the fuel pump died:
