Change fuel filter, and air filter. After your change the filters hook a fuel pressure guage to the fuel rail. The spot to hook up at looks like a valve thats on your tire. Should be no less than about 35 psi. If fuel pressure is good and it still struggles during warm up. Look on the throttle body and see if the linkage can be adjusted or if there is a adjustment screw. All else fails change throttle position sensor.
Wouldnt hurt to put new spark plugs in if you havent already done so.

2001 DeVille will start fine but won't continue to idle without keeping your foot on the gas pedal


Have it scanned and look for codes first, but then fuel trim, O2, and MAS air flow readings. I'm going to guess it's running lean and you have an air leak in the throttlebody.
