If adjusting the air control valve on the throttle didn't help:
1. Please clean your air filter with carburetor cleaner. You can purchase any carburetor cleaner on any auto supply shop.
2. Check your fuel filter. There could be some dirt that is blocking the fuel line.
3. Check your fuel pump if the pressure produce is still enough.
4. Lastly, check your EGR (Engine Gasoline Regulation) sensor, it is near the throttle body. If this is bad, the gasoline is not regulated that is why you need to step on the gas so that engine would not turn off. Before your replace it make sure that the electrical wires are all connected and is not broken.

Car will not start without pressing gas pedal to keep idle speed up. If I keep idle at 900 RPM or higher it runs as long as foot is on gas pedal. It then stalls out when I take foot off gas pedal. No...


Have the idle bypass valve checked, also called idle air control valve.
If that valve is stuck in the closed position, it's not allowing the fuel to bypass the throttle plate to keep it idling, resulting in stalling, but will keep engine running if the pedal is pushed down.
