Why does my car turn off after I take my foot off gas in the morning on 2001 Toyota Solara

I can't keep my car running. It turns on but, when I take my foot off the gas it turns off. Is it the fuel filter or something else?

Sounds like you may have an air intake issue where too much air is getting into the engine. I would have it checked for that possible cause.

I don't remember if i had responded. Sorry if I did not, but you were correct. It was the air intake while the car was in idle. $100 for the dianostic and $460 for parts and labor. Good call and thank you.
