Car won't start unless I give it gas ... if it starts at all.

So I recently had the flywheel and started replaced on my 97 Chevrolet Cavalier and now it has a new problem... go figure. I've asked the mechanic who did the work to look at it but he's reluctant for one reason or another... I kinda get the feeling he thinks I'm full of shit.
I can't get the car to start unless I hammer on the gas pedal. Then, when it does start, I have to keep giving it gas for a couple minutes because if I just let it idle the engine dies. Temperatures have been below freezing here for some time and that is only making the process more excruciating. Today I couldn't get it to start at all and gave up on it for fear of killing the battery.
If I can get the car running and drive around for a while getting the car to start up again is fairly easy, so long as the car isn't left to sit for more than 3-4 hours. It also will idle fine for me too after a good 15 minute drive or so.
So what's wrong with it? Searching around the intertubes leaves me to believe it could be a problem with the idle air control and could need replacing. But I don't really know... my car knowledge is quite limited and I just got my wallet cleaned out from getting the damn flywheel and started replaced.
