When I bring the car to a stop it won't idle unless I give it gas continuously. Will run after that once I get it up to speed. What do you think that could possibly be? Please and thank you. Let me know.

Hello,

This is common when the throttle body needs to be serviced. here is a guide to help us fix the problem:

Also it could have a vacuum leak which can cause the same stalling at idle.

Please run down these guides and diagrams and report back.
