Hi there. Try turning on the ignition to the ’ON’ position 3 times with 30 seconds each time to see if the fuel system had air in the rail. This will help with the air in the system. When starting, hold the pedal on the floor, but just above the floor and crank the engine until the engine starts. For the idle not holding, either there is air in the fuel system or the idle air control valve is plugged up. If you need further assistance with your engine idle condition, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
