Question about 2004 Chevrolet Impala
Need to press gas pedal to start
Try cleaning the throttle body out first...check engine light on?..possible coolant temp sensor...some problems have multiple causes and are hard to diagnose without actually seeing the vehicle...if you have to hold gas peddle to floor it usually means car is flooded (too much fuel) ...check fuel pressure to see if it bleeds off when not running...could be an indication of leaky injectors or fuel pressure regulator

Well I would think start small. Look at your throttle cable and make sure you have full motion and it is tensioned correctly. If it is ok I would next replace the fuel filter, this is supposed to be done every once in a while (not sure of the mileage. Iusually do mine every 15-20K miles). If that isn't it your next likely steps would be testing fuel pressure and ensuring there is not a clog in the fuel lines. If you find low fuel pressure replace the fuel pump. Hope this helps!
