Exclamation 02 Mustang Starts then Dies

I have an 02 mustang w/ V6 that over time more and more frequently has developed a problem when starting. It'll start fine at times and other times it will start and immediately die when you let go of the key. If I give the car a little gas it'll stay running. In the past after maybe 30 seconds of that it would rev a bit and begin idling on its own. now i've held it at times a few minutes and it never has started to idle on its own. If I keep it running and get into drive and drive a few minutes it runs ok. at times i can start it with no problems at all so i'm puzzled. I thought at first it was happening when i'd start the car with the blower running but now its done it without that so i'm confused. any help is appreciated

Re: 02 Mustang Starts then Dies

He's right. Check your fuel filter. Also, you may have a plugged EGR or PCV valve.
Before you go throwing parts at this, I'd strongly recommend you take it to a reputable mechanic and have him diagnose it. You can do the work yourself, but have a professional diagnose the problem- half the time, you'll save money by not guessing at what's wrong.
