My 06 cobalt will not idle. I take my foot off gas pedal it cuts off.

The automatic idle control unit is not operating. Could be as simple as a poor or disconnected wire or the unit is bad.

Engine will die after warmed up

depends on what you mean by "warmed up". If you mean engine reaches normal working temprature and works normally then cuts out , but restarts wwithin 5 minutes and then carries on working normally until it cuts out again, and then restarts withing minutes...have the throttle position sensor checked. It may be that you have a warning code on the dash?
It might be the pedal position sensor alternatively.
If your engine works ok until fully warmed up this may be the problem.
If there are any symptoms before the cut out happens can you please add the details and repost thwe query

My 2004 ford expedition idles rough like its going to cut off The idling jumps up and down in park or drive only when stopped Service engine light cuts off and on periodically what could be happening

run a teat. Remove the vacuum line from the brake booster and plug off. Start engine and see if it idles normally. . Put your foot on the brake pedal and apply the brakes . If the idle is still normal replace the brake booster as there is an air leak in the diaphram.. The service light is probably recording misfiring and air fuel mixture problems.. run fault codes any way just to check it out .

After cranking it idles fine but after about a min. it starts idling really high. I can't find any vacuum leaks. is there any of the controle modules that would cause this ?

Are you sure that this is actually idling high? If you put you foot on the brake, and put into drive, would the vehicle jump?
The reason that I ask, is the cooling fan has a very similar sounding effect, when it kicks in. If this were to be the cause, you would alter it's noise, slightly, by putting into drive, but the vehicle would not jump excessively?

If the vehicle is actually reving high, I suggest paying for a diagnostic, presumeing you have no error codes........ Many things can cause higher idle, many of them NEEDED, they deal with issues like temprature, emissions, some models charging....etc. get an opinion.

Your vehicle, by the way, has drive by wire, meaning there is not actually a pull cable going from the foot pedal to the throttle plate..... So, you need to inquire, programmically, with the computer, typically these tools are too expensive for home use....get an opinion from a good shop, or maybe the dealer.... At least the dealer would also look for recall issues for you...

Car will not idle must keep foot on gas pedal or it cuts off

Check the EGR operation. If this valve is leaking it will cause your symptoms.

It sounds like you need a complete tune up and have the cooling system fushed and filled as well. It sound like it needs some TLC.
