starting problems

alright guys, yesterday when i went to start my car its bogged hardcore while trying to start. At first it didnt even want to try to start. I kept trying it and when it finally did start my rpm needle went from 0 rpm to like -2000 rpm at first, then went jumped back to 800 rpm while i was idling. Once i get the car started it acts fine, accelerates fine and drives normal. The only engine mod i have done is installed a K&N Typhoon Intake about 4 months ago. Any idea's??

It's normal for your car to jump up to around 2k sometimes at start up for a few seconds and then work its way back down.

Check your battery, and don't start your car with your AC on.
