My car has an automatic transmission.

From what you’ve described, it sounds like you have a problem with your electronic throttle control system. Make sure your battery is good, if it is you may need to replace your throttle control valve to fix this issue in particular. In order to avoid any unnecessary repairs, consider having one of our technicians further diagnose the starting issue at the convenience of your home. Best of luck.
