Default Camry'98 question

I have a weird problem with my car.
Sometimes it would start in the morning and immediately stop or would run
a low RPMs(for a cold engine.)The car rattles, kind off, and does not move
readily if I put in Reverse. I also noticed that the oil alarm light stays
ON longer than usual and eventually goes off.
Interestingly enough,if I step on the gas pedal right after it starts-->no
problem: engine goes to higher RPMs like it should.
Note: I've noticed that it happens when it's humid outside (muggy in the
summer or rainy in the fall). As long as it's not humid (even when its
very cold in the morning) problem does not manifest itself.
I've replaced fuel pump, air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, engine
coolant temp. sensor - problem is still there. Fuel pressure is normal.
Engine idle RPM are about 750.
Please respond
Thanx a million

Idle Air Control Valve...probably the most god-awful annoying problem with
our generation of Camrys. Try having a fuel induction service or replace
the valve.

Do a search on how to clean the idle air control IAC valve.
