When I start the car it will not idle. It starts just fine then the rpm's go down to around 500 and the car dies. Finally after starting the car and keeping the engine rev'd for about 5 minutes I was able to put the car in gear but it still idles around 500 rpm's and will die if the engine is not rev'd. This happens for about 5 minutes and then the idle jumps over 1k rpm's and the car is pulling against the break at a dead stop.

Check the EGR valve. It could be sticking.
