I wanted to see if anyone has seen or heard of this issue. I took my lunch break today, went to get something to eat, came back to the office, no problems. A few minutes later I tried to start it and it would just turn over, wouldn't start. I eventually gave it is some gas and it would run. As soon as I let the throttle go, it cuts off. So it will not idol.

Spark plugs have recently been changes and it isn't skipping, it is running smooth when it is running. It doesn't seem to be a fuel filter issue, as it doesn't sputter, it just quits. I am thinking something is wrong with the idol controls, but wanted to see if anyone had a suggestion on where to start looking.

Thanks.

went out and tried it again, and it is working fine now. Don't know what that was all about, still give it the once over though.

Check your Idle Air Control Valve. When it is idling ruff or stalling, tap the IAC with a wrench and if it improves you have the problem. It could be intermitent.
