Most common culprit is whats called the IAC or idle Air Control Valve. It maintains the vehicles engine idle speed when you are not pressing on the gas pedal. You can eithe clean the valve assembly by removing it from the throttle body so u can access the air passage also, or just replace it with a new one and a new gasket. b eusr eot clean the air pasage too since you have it off. the only other thing is to have a reputable repair facility runa full diagnostic test on the engine systems and see what they say.
I hope this helps.

Any Idea's ?


It half sounds like a problem with the safety switch for the starter lockout. On a stick shift it may be on the clutch pedal but is on the brake pedal for automatics. This assures that your foot is on the brake pedal so the vehicle does not lurch when you start it.

This would show up in the restarting process, but it is intended to lock out the starter and would not interfere with an engine that is already running. So to keep the engine running feathering would not have anything to do with the starter lockout.
