but it didn't help. The issue I am having is when I start the
car to go somewhere and the engine is cold it starts and
runs great however when I get to town and the car is
warmed up I turn it off and do what I need to do I get back
in the car and the car till start but not run it spits and
spiders then dies all in about 4 seconds or less I have to
give it a little gas to get it to run and then when i take my
foot off the gas pedal it runs just fine I have tried and tried
to diagnose the issue but now I'm hoping someone on

knows how to fix this issue. Thanks

Plug a diagnostic into the OBD terminal (under the dash between the steering wheel and center console) I suspect the car's computer is getting bad info from a sensor and adjusting it to run with the bogus info. The OBD will tell you what sensor is bad

I had it checked before I replaced a part on the throttle body and the was that part and now it's saying a totally different part I will get them ran again and post what I find out on here
