Question about Cars & Trucks
It sounds like there is no fuel getting to intake.
when you step down on accelerator, it is designed to squirt a shot of fuel into the intake, which would keep it running for a few seconds. same as pouring gas down intake.
you never stated if you had carburation or injection system, in either case no fuel is getting through on its own.
which could be a variety of problems depending on which system you had.

you are having a fuel delivery problem...and it could be caused by numerous things...such as a bad fuel pump, a bad cold sensor or warm up injector. You haven't attempted to solve any of these suspected faults...so take it to a mechanic for repair

You may just have a low idle? Does your car normally idle below 500 RPM?
To increase your idle, simple open your hood and locate your throttle body. It will be found where your air intake connects to your engine. There may be a plastic cover over the actual throttle, and if there is, remove it. Then you will see the small, shiny throttle arm that is connected to your throttle lines, which you will recognize as small cables. There will be a single screw that controls where this arm sits. This is the idle control, as it controls how open your throttle is when you are not applying the gas pedal. Tighten this screw a 2-3 turns and try to start your car. You may notice that it idles higher, and, therefore possibly louder, Try to find the lowest possible idle speed that allows your car to run without dying, this will ensure you get the best gas mileage possible.
