Really need to know your engine size but here are some possiblities of why it would do this.
(Starts But Stalls)
*Fuel Pressure not correct
*Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) is out of calibration
*Your Idle Air flow is not correct Check (IAC) Idle Air Control Motor operartion.
*Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Sensor is out of calibration.
* Possible problem with the PCM power and ground circuits

Does it stall when it is cold as well as hot? And you have changed your fuel filter is that correct? No codes set? It also could be your Throttle Position Sensor (TPS)

Pull AIS (automatic idle speed) or IAC (idle air control) motor off, clean with carb cleaner or throttle body spray cleaner, as well as port it came out of & see if that doesn't help or cure it. If it cures it for a while, then starts to do it again, replace it. (located on side, at front part of throttle body usually.)

02 caravan will start and stay running as long as my foot is on the gas but as soon as i take my foot off the gas it dies


using a digital volt ohm meter test the throttle position sensor. if it has a dead spot at idle position it will stall. also if the throttle plate is dirty it can cause a stall at idle and all you have to do is clean it.

Sounds like a cracked head. Or possibly a bad head gasket.
Either one of these would explain water coming out of tailpipe.

Car wont stay running unless foot is on the gas


Withoutknowing if the check engine light is on it could be a variety of things including but not limited to the o2 sensor, throttle positioning sensor, and the MAF and MAP sensors. Best diagnosed by using an OBDII scanner to scan for codes. If no codes are present I would then check for the pressure coming from the fuel pump to make sure it is still functioning.

Stalls will not stay running after wormming up


Throttle position senser might be going bad. I had in the same problem in my truck. It wouldn't stay running unless I had my foot on the gas and as soon as I let off, it would die. Try it. The sensers are relatively cheap at Auto Zone or somewhere similar. Around 30 bucks.
