ENGINE WON'T STAY RUNNING ON IT'S OWN.

1995 Subaru Justy • 4 cylinder AWD Manual • 190,858 miles

What could cause the car to not stay on when started in the mornings and needs the engine to be revved or the choke to be pulled out for it to not shut off? The battery charge light comes on then goes off after and the rpm is at 1. My alternator was checked and it's charging ok but even when I do pull out the choke the sound of the car is different.

Your assistance is needed as I am at the point of just selling the car after all these issues.

This diagnostic walk through is very good for the symptoms you are describing. You are going to have to track down where there is some electrical issue or other corosion or contaminants that are affecting the car in this way. It is an unusual issue, but if you have the general diagnosis, the walk through will get you the rest of the way there.
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance with this issue.
