Escape will not start

  • 2002 FORD ESCAPE
I have a 2002 Ford Escape with 100082 miles on it and a V6 engine. My engine cranks but my car will not start unless I have the gas pedal down. It will not idle. If I remove my foot from the gas pedal the car turns off. I revved the engine for a moment and when it got up to about 4000 rpms it makes a strange whipping noise and the car shakes. I just put over 3000 dollars into a new transmission. I am poor college student and I really don't have the money to spend another large repair. Please tell me this is something simple or what I can start to check.

I have seen this problem before its the idle air control valve making it stall at idle and it is making the noise.

Here is a guide that will help.
