Icon8 lots of problems 86 2.0si

so i just bought an 86 2.0si with automatic. got it home and found out it won't restart when warm. to top it off now it's hard to start even when cold and likes to chug around like it's missing for a few seconds before leveling out. has a real hard time starting after being ran, most of the time it just won't.

also, i have to accelerate real slow cuz if i step on the gas pedal normal it'll drop in rpm and try to die on me. it's like that from every stop. unless you go really slow with the pedal to get it going. i'm sure these issues are dealing with sensors? but any help would be great. things i'm thinking of are o2 sensor and coolant temp sensor.

oh, and it idles too high, 1,500 rpm most all the time. how do you adjust idle speed?
