Exclamation 1991 Taurus GL Wagon will not stay started unless gas pedal is depressed.

My 1991 Taurus GL 3.0 Wagon starts but will not stay on unless I keep my foot on the gas. It idles rough and dies after a few seconds. After driving for a few minutes, the car will run normal and I do not need to keep my foot on the gas. So Far I have replaced the fuel filter and the spark plugs. Yesterday the check engine light came on for about 2 miles on the highway at 60mph and turned off once I exited the highway. I took the IAC off and checked to see if it moves when the ignition is in the ON position. It moves a tiny bit, hardly noticeable. With the IAC off, the car does not want to start at all and I still have to keep my foot on the gas to keep it running.

Any help would be appreciated. I will do my best to answer questions if I can. I went to OReilly auto parts to do a check engine code thing but they said they could not do it since the check engine light is not on.

Codes can be stored even with no light. It may be the ECT sensor reading off.

Yeah I figured that the codes are stored but the girl at OReilly insisted that she could not get anything without the light on.

You could try this. Fuel Injection Technical Library How To Run a Self-Test
