Started with erratic idle. Now car stalls and won't idle when initially started. Must keep foot on gas pedal. Light is on. Can't find replacement throttle body - out of stock everywhere.

3rd time replacing the throttle body

At high speeds the motor would hesitate or miss badly. Replaced plugs, cleaned throttle body but still had problems. Replaced throttle body and no longer an issue. Expensive part but easy repair.
