Turn engine over and idling too slow to place in gear without dying. Tried holding accelerator with same result. New fuel filter 4 days ago but problem has returned. Diagnostic tests showed no hard errors. Help.

Thanks

Check the fuel pressure first then you might want to go to a mechanic and have them hook up an OBD test tool. It will give you error codes which will make the process of elimination easier.
