I've been having idle problems for awhile but the car ran pretty good. Also I can't find the

Will it stay running if you feather the gas pedal? If so I would think idle air control valve is either dirty or faulty and or dirty throttle plate. If won't stay running by feathering the gas pedal then could be throttle position sensor or maf sensor. How long since your last major tune up?

Ok, Replaced the idle sensor, cleaned the throttle plate. Getting a code 12; Does anyone know what that is? The car will fire but starves out for fuel right away.
