Pump your brakes dude, you've given practically no information. List what you use for engine management.

If this is stock I'd say its your coolant temp sensor at the back of the head.

Replace the coolant temperature sensor at the back of the motor.

Jeez. Talk about an unreadable post. Capitalization. Punctuation. It works.

Go here to understand how the 1.6 idle works: http://www.miata.net/garage/isc.html

If it won't idle when cold, your Air Valve could be stuck closed. Can't even tell if that's your problem from your post. You should try diagnosis instead of parts replacement, BTW.

Note that I was polite enought to capitalize and punctuate. You owe me.
