It will crank up again but I will have to hold brake and gas to keep it running at another stop. Once it cools down it will run fine until warmed back up. What would the problem be.

    The check engine light is not coming on. My skill level is moderate. I have about 130,000 miles on it. I drove it back from New Jersey and it ran fine, air condition and all. I didnt drive it for a while, but kept it in the garage and cranked it 1 or twice a week but didnt drive it for about 8 months when I did this problem was there.

    Check for presence of mice that could have made nest in air filter box.
    Chewed wires or vacuum lines. One of the most overlooked problems

    Idle air control valve stuck? When you first start up(cold) does it go to about 1100 rpms even briefly , or does it just hit 6-700 rpm's and stay there and gradually slow down when it's warming up.--coolant temp cool...injector pulse(fuel trim) is longer , when it warms up you get less fuel but same air maybe leaning it out to the point of stall.
