Question about Cars & Trucks
Sounds like your MAF sensor. (mass air flow sensor). Located on your air inlet on top of the engine. Go to your dealer buy one and install or replace it yourself.
you can also start with the cheapest try.....change your gas filter and clean your throttle body with "throttle body cleaner". Or if you prefer get the dealer to do it....about a $60 bill.

SOURCE: starts then dies
hi the condition you describe sounds like it could be the ecu s coolant temp sensor which is common but the second lady discribes something a little different if fuel injector additive you put in the tank clears the problem the it re-occurs then you would need to flush the fuel tank and change the fuel filter refill and then put the injector additive in to clear the lines and injectors and if you run your tank low then the pump picks all the **** up off the bottom of your tank don,t run the vechicle low on gas why i would check the sensor first is after 10-15 mins is when the sensors kick in yates210456

Engine stall or RPM fluctuates
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
