I recently purchased this car and realized when I got it home that it will crank just fine, but within a few seconds, it'll shut off. The best way I found to solve this is to hold down the gas pedal for a few minutes then let it go and it will stay crunk. I also noticed that reving the engint a few times and then letting go of the gas doesn't work. It'll shut off again. It doesn't happen all the time, mainly when the car has sat for a while (first crank of the day, or even after a few hours of sitting). Please tell me what could be causing this so that I can have it repaired as soon as possible.

Could be the idle air control motor.
