I got up to go, started the car. It turned over and started but won't stay running. The day before it did this, I was driving and the car felt like it didn't have its usual "get up and go". Please help.

Clean and test the idle air control valve and EGR valve to include testing the throttle position sensor-

Your best shot is bring it in and have it further checked-this is not a simple fix-sorry
