You are having a problem with your throttle body intake which is directly connected to your gas pedal and deals with the flow of gas from tank thru fuel line to fuel rail and then thru injectors which spray directly into engine. if you cant feed the engine fuel it will keep dying. also check out your intake manifold for leaks and cracks too.

Starts dies


an alternator won't stall your car, the battery provides power to keep the spark going. It sounds like you could have some bad fuel, if you're able to run the throttle manually with your foot and keep it going that would indicate idle control. but if it stalls still when you are giving it gas. I would guess a fuel supply issue, either water in your gas, or fuel pump. Good Luck.

91geo prism had a dead battery,jump started it And the battery light stayed on, so I put a new battery in and will not start but spins over great. Found the 30 amp fuse bad on the positive cable and...


You will need to check all the fuses, the main and inside fuse box. for the amp fuse to blow the jumper cables or battery were installed backwards. check all fuses i think you will find another bad one. as far as the batttery light being on, you may have a bad alternator. the car will run until it drains the new battery. the battery light may still be on once you get car started. have the charging system checked.


Again i think its just a bad fuse, the car was starting fine until the battery replacement.

The last thing is that sometimes they loose the idle memory or get flooded from connecting battery with key on, try to start by controlling the gas. hold gas pedal to floor and try to start engine. asengine starts slowly release gas. if car stalls out when gas pedal is let go then restart and hold gas pedal a little for about 2min then release and let idle, good day.

Car will not start without pressing gas pedal to keep idle speed up. If I keep idle at 900 RPM or higher it runs as long as foot is on gas pedal. It then stalls out when I take foot off gas pedal. No...


Have the idle bypass valve checked, also called idle air control valve.
If that valve is stuck in the closed position, it's not allowing the fuel to bypass the throttle plate to keep it idling, resulting in stalling, but will keep engine running if the pedal is pushed down.
