You might want to take a look at the Mass Airflow System, I think I have had a similar problem and that was the factor for mine. I had to get the sensor and a couple other items replaced when my vehicle was doing the same thing. Also, you might want to make sure that the wiring is okay, I have heard sometimes that small critters like to nest near the engine because of its warmth and will eat the coating around the wires because some chemical compound tastes good to them. Depending on what wires that connect to certain sensors, chewed up or corroded ones can cause problems like this as well.

Truck will not stay running unless I keep applying gas and it warms up


Is the check engine light on ?
Sounds like the idle speed control is faulty.

When starting my car it is having trouble idling, sometimes high and sometimes it just turns off. Its stays on as long as i give it gas but as soon as i stop giving it gas it shuts off. Can someone help...


depending if it has a electronic choke or a secondary air injection unit, this will be faulty.
it will run if you can keep it running until the engine warms up.

1995 toyota corolla, car will not turn over, hs power and wants to turn over, but does not


While the engine is cold, try starting it and giving a little gas while you start it. If it starts, release your foot and see if it keeps running. If it stalls out, start it again (by giving a little gas again) and then keep your foot on the gas slightly to keep it from going to it's normal idle. Once the engine is warmed up, let off the gas and see if it stays running again. If it does then you need to clean/reaplace the IAC valve that is on the throttle body.

If you can, remove it and clean it out with carb cleaner (like B-12) and an old toothbrush. It could save you some money from having to replace it.

My car will start but won't stay on.


Check you fuel pressure to see if its putting out enough fuel to keep the engine running. Otherwise it could be a dirty fuel filter or a bad fuel injector

Ford f-150 will crank but not start or stay running


Look on the throttle body for a little cylinder with an electrical connector on it. Use the handle of screwdriver to give that a few whacks while someone starts the engine after it starts, give a few more whacks. Engine running now? Replace the Intake Air Control motor. or IAC.

Replace the acceleration pump. It's a small diaphragm on the carburator, near the fuel line. Usually less than $10.
