You can have one of several issues that can't be determined without a fault code reader to narrow it down. Typically, it sounds like you have a fuel supply related issue, but it could easily be something else like an unplugged vaccuum line, or faulty EGR. It is best you buy an inexpensive fault code reader and a Haynes Manual for your car... look up the codes in the chapter on Emission Controls and get back with us for assistance. A vacuum line diagram is located under the hood, go over every lie carefully and look for cracks and leaks, check the air filter box and any larger hoses carefully for cracks. You can do this easily, be patient and do a thorough job of it. Pull out a single spark plug and look at it for excessive carbon deposits. Replace with DENSO Iridium plugs that last 60K miles. Look at you spark plug wires... you will need an inexpensive multimeter to check them; Radioshack has them for cheap.

Start and stalls imediately

I would say ballast resistor, this is a resistor used to reduce power at the coil from 13.8 volt down to usually 9 volt. this allows an engine to have extra voltage for starting and run on the lower voltage. ballast resister faulty it runs out of spark when you disengage the starter
