When i try to start it i have to hold the key in the on position for a couple of seconds then it will start, it idles at bout 500 and when i push the gas to go it dies. please help if you can.
I think your first port of call here is to have the fuel pressure checked out, because it sounds to me as though you may have a faulty fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator.
You could have someone gently clamp the fuel return line to slightly restrict the fuel return and see if that makes any difference, but obviously this would just be a diagnostic measure and not a repair.
