There should be an AIS automatic idle speed motor mounted on the side of your throttle body across from or near your throttle linkage, or in that area. Usually held on with 2 torx screws. That regulates your idle up & down as needed depending on load situations on the engine, so that it doesn't stall out. Quite often they get gummed up or become defective and cause stalling. Before spending money on parts etc, (by the way, I'm told autozone will scan it free of charge for codes) I would get a spray can of throttle body cleaner, remove the AIS motor & clean the plunger & tip real good, and also spray some cleaner into the port that you removed it from, rub a little vaseline on the "O" ring at the seal of AIS motor before you re-install, and put it back in, tighten up the screws & give it a try. If it cures it great, but if it acts same shortly after running good for a while, buy new & replace. A lot of the time, this thing does not show a fault code in the computer, so it gets overlooked. Keep us posted

Check the alternator out put.Also the alternator could have a bad voltage regulator,or diode gone out,would cause this problem.Out put should read 13.75 to14.25 .

If I understand correctly the car will idle but will not drive unless you pump the gas. If that's the case then you need to have it overhauled. There are blocked lines inside that are preventing it from working properly. Hope this helps.

You need to check if the Idle control jets are set properly, these are the 2 screws near the base plate on this type of carburettor.
Screw them fully in, then on the primary side screw it out 2.5 turns.
On the secondary side screw this out 1.75 turns. This should get your idle up.
If this dosn't work then you have got problems with the idle jet system which means you need to pull the emulsion tubes out and jets out to clean them.
Also check that your Idle screw is screwed in enough to allow the throttle to be open enough to idle.
Hope this helps
