Question about Toyota Corolla
I am trying to get my Toyota running... I've replaced the spark plugs, battery, air filter, and my car has plenty of oil and gas. The problem is this: When I turn the key, the car starts, but if I don't keep my foot on the pedal, the car shuts itself off. I have ruled out the alternator and starter being the problem, unless I missed something obvious, but I'm not very car savoy, so I don't want to get screwed by any mechanics.

If Biggy1 has described it right, I think when you remove the WIRE to the spark plug ( not the plug itself ) and oil jumps out, there is a cylindrical seal that needs replacing and one does not need to even remove the cylinder head.
I have the same problem with my corolla. On the other hand if Biggy meant when removing the SPARK PLUG oil was on the contacts....

clogged injectors you need to put cleaner in the fuel to help get dirt and grit out of them some times (every 3 months).
I am assuming you are saying it will turn over but not fire and run when cold?

EIther the IAC or throttle postion sensor is dirty or faulty. Or leaky vacuum hose somewhere. As long as it is not missing and running weird, then you may have bad coil packs.
