Every time I stop and shut off the car it won't start back up again unless I hold the gas down to the floor. I've replaced the fuel injector, distributor cap and rotor, fuel pump, spark plugs and wires. I've taken it in to multiple places to get it looked at and nobody can help me figure it out.
I'm not very mechanical, but willing to try doing it myself to save some money. prob. could also be the fuel intake tube...just not sure, but gas is visably leaking out the back end while car is running. thanks.

Why is car sputtering like it is not getting enough gas or the catalytic converter is stopped up?
Shifts great between 3rd and 4th
wondering if I need to do anything when I change this part. What do I set it at.
I have a 1997 Geo Tracker, 1.6L, automatic trans with 120K miles. The car drives very well. Except, for the last few days, once it gets warmed up, it will not idle. At this point the car will continue to drive well as long as it is moving down the road. However, it will not idle.

It normally idles when warm is 800 rpm when at operating temperature. Now when I slow down to a very low speed, or stop, the engine will continue to low rpm until it reaches 500 rpm. Then is stall. It runs well until it stalls, no roughness to it. If I am able to catch the accelerator before it dies, it'll run rough for a brief moment, then run well again.

Once it stalls, it will immediately restart if I keep the rpm to about 1K. But the problem remains until the engine cools off. A shade tree mechanic suggested it is probably the idle position sensor. But at $184 for parts, I'd like to make sure before ordering parts.

Any ideas? I'm on a limited income and have very little money to invest. I want to get it right the first time
Since it came out of the shop and the cover wasn't put back on the warning says 6 percent on oil even though it was just changed.
Happens every time it gets below 1/2 tank.
