Car starts only when my foot is on the gas.
There are a lot of reasons a computer controlled car won’t stay running unless you have your foot on the gas. Anything from low oil pressure to a weak fuel pump could be the cause. Your particular vehicle, however, is susceptible to having problems with the idle air control valve (IAC). A trained professional, like one at YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose the problem for you.
