Hi, my Bakkie had a problem starting, but now it starts and just cuts out. It does not want to idle. I did rev it a few times, but still cutting out. Can you please help me? Thanks

Hey NATHLEEN,

It sounds like you have a vacuum leak or the throttle bore needs service or you have a idle air control motor that is not working, here are some guides to get the problem fixed.
