Question type: Maintenance & Repair

takes about 20 to 25 turns then it will start but once it is
started it wants to sounds like it wants to die when I push
on the gas pedal it wants to die when I let go of the gas
pedal it idles for a little while but wants to die I hear back
firing in the air filter area what could be wrong also a
couple times my car is shut off on the freeway once car
does start it allows me to put it in drive but I'm only able to
