  • One or more of the fuel injectors may short out electrically causing a rough idle condition.
  • A dirty throttle body may cause a lower than normal engine idle resulting in a stalling condition. A stalling condition may also result if an idle learn procedure is not performed if the battery goes dead or is disconnected

    Sounds like a fuel problem. Check the fuel filter.

    Engine wont start, unless I push the gas pedal and keep my foot on it.?

    Could be a dirty throttle body, or a stuck idle air control valve.
    Is the check engine light staying on now ?

    Car wont stay started unless foot is on pedal

    you can try to see if the fuel regulator is bad,sometimes there will be gas in the air cleaner\tube,it sounds to me that its getting too much fuel

    Wont hold idle will start with foot depressing gas pedal will run with foot on gas but stalls when foot removed

    Check and clean Idle air control valve. Make sure its responding to signal as well. Also make sure ther are no vacuum hoses disconnected. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to start.
