1998 Ford Explorer 6 cyl

We have to push the gas pedal to the floor to get it to start, and we have to keep foot on the pedal reving it up a bit to keep it running. When you let off the pedal it will die.

Any ideas what's wrong?

Can you check for codes? Some of the national brand autostores will check po codes for free.

Usually if the vehicle will run off idle but not idle, meaning throttle closed, I check the idle air system. If there are any codes, it might point you in the right direction.
