The problem never happens on the first start, it only happens when I stopped the car and start again, I have to keep pressing the gas pedal for the engine to stay on! I have checked the battery, alternator and the battery connection they are all good.

Do you
have the same problem?

Sometimes it takes up to about 50 miles for the motor to re learn idle.
