My car cranks just fine the first time but when I go run an errand and crank it. It'll start like if it was dieing and I have to press the gas pedal down to get it to run good. Any thoughts or advise much appreciated!

I dont see how the timing being off would cause your symptoms. Who told you to check the timing?Also just because the lights not on doesnt mean there arent and codes.I always check for codes first.

Symptoms indicates a possible fault with the IAC. If no trouble codes are present, have the IAC and throttle body cleaned and retest.

Ok I cleaned the IACV and throttle body and it seemed to do a little better on the starts unlike before. Only sometimes will it crank rough
