If it won't idle at all or even if it idles too fast sometimes check all the vacuum lines for leaks or one being unplugged

Why dont my car want to idle

Do you mean it revs too high, or dies? Check EGR as most common issue, then IAC motor, coolant temp sensor, O2 sensor, tune up items.

Failed emissions

High HCs means un burned fuel ie it runs rich at idle. Could be a egr valve partially stuck open. (it should be 100% closed at idle) could be worn out injector nozzles, could also be a sticky iac (idle air control) motor. But probably not a computer problem.

Idles too high at start, then too low after warmup.

Did you have it diagnosed by a scanner of some time? Sounds like you are pulling/replace instead of diagnosing the issue prior to fixing. You probably have a bad IAC sensor, but it could also be the throttle position sensor. Do have a check engine light when it does run? How many miles are on the vehicle. it could be a timing issue. I had a 95 Lumina and it turned out to be a sensor, but mileage does play a key in this issue.

Starts/stalls won't run until pedal tapped, 2 miles in town, 6 miles highway, then1000-1500 idle. shut down 9 hours, start/stall tap pedal runs return 6 mi. highway,2miles town same high idle. checked code...

Check your IAC motor (Idle Air Control) It could be sticking open.
Ps. Might be called Idle Speed Control motor it depends on the make and i forget what chevy calls theres.

Idles high

Zab, First things first, check for any vacuum leaks, hoses that are disconnected, cracked or just plain worn out. Also check for vacuum leaks around the throttle body.
It really sounds like you have an EGR valve that is stuck open ever so slightly. The MAP sensor is a result of a low manifold vacuum. The IAC (idle air control) motor is trying to compesate and keep the engine running resulting in the high idle speed. I would remove the EGR valve and clean it gently with a brush and pick to remove any carbon build up.
Let me know, regards.

Coolant sensor

refill and bleed the cooling system.  The water from your overflowing radiator may be the cause of you engine problems....dry of the motor.
