What can I do to fix my fuel injection problem without replacing the entire system? Why did it recur?

When I start my car, it revs for a split second but drops and dies, so I have to hold the gas and warm it up before I can release the gas without the car dying. Still it barely holds above 400 rpm, when it should be holding at 1000 rpm. This happened once 4 years ago, and the Toyota dealership replaced my entire fuel injection system. This time I took it to a mechanic who replaced the computer that regulates air and gas flow, which fixed it for 3 days. They also replaced my fuel filter. Now the problem is back.

Do you

It needs to be diagnosed properly before you are going to know what it needs.

This question was asked 6 months ago so I expect it has been resolved by now.
