Sounds lie your pressure is ok, but I am curious about the Volume. When was the last time you changed your Fuel Filter? If it is a flex fuel vehicle, and you use a standard gauge on fuel pressure, it will read a bit high.
Second, How old is your battery? Mine did the same thing over the winter, and I found out that my 2000 S-10 only had one replacement battery 4 years ago. It didnt have the Cranking Amps it needed , resulting in hard starts, and low voltage to the Spark Plugs, which made it run rough.

MY truck is fuel injected what would make it so i have to hold down gas pedal to finally get it to start then die

Sounds like you have some injector problems or the fuel pressure regulator. If the check engine light is not on, I would look for something allowing extra fuel into the engine.

04 Galant will start but not stay on. I have to hold down the gas. Mechanic said the accelerator was deprogrammed and I have to take it to a dealership. True?

its sounds like your IAC (idle air control) motor isn't working correctly. It controls the amount of air that enters the engine when the throttle body is closed. If it is not working, the engine will start but dies from insufficiant air flow. Your car doesn't die with the gas pedal pressed because pressing the pedal opens the throttle body allowing air to enter the engine.
