Sounds like lost compression maybe, does it run rough when it's on? does it stay on when you give it gas? does it just die or does it sorta choke clunk clunk sputter and die? some more information on the nature of the problem would be very much appreciated.

94 nissan altima won't start and iddle after cleaning IACV valve


An IAC (idle air control) motor is designed to adjust the engine idle RPM speed by opening and closing an air bypass passage inside the throttle body. The cars computer or PCM (powertrain control module) receives information from various sensors and will output signals to adjust the idle air control motor in or out to adjust engine idle speed by controlling engine idle air. An idle air control motor can fail one of two ways, either the motor short circuits and stops working or the motor will develop high resistance and cause the idle air control motor to react slowly, either failure can cause the engine to stall at idle. When a trouble code scan is performed it sometimes won't always detect a failed or weak idle air control motor.

Car cranks but will not idle


If it starts and runs, but won't idle, could be a vac leak, dirty throttle body, or faulty idle air control valve.
