I have to keep playing with the throttle to start it and keep it running. If I stop rocking the throttle back and forth it dies. IIt also keep backfiring through the throttle body sometimes. I changed the idle air control valve.

Check the fuel pressure, idle air control valve, EGR valve, MAP and TPS sensors

Is the check engine light on? If so, have the computer scanned to identify trouble codes. Most parts stores will do it for free.
