Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It seems that it does not want to idle.  When you first start it, doesn't want to
stay running.  But once you get it going it hesatates but goes on.  When you
come to a light it wants to die any help would be appreciated.

Try some general maintenance things first. Check air filter and replace if necessary, clean throttle with throttle body cleaner, clean or replace Idle Air Control valve or Mass Air Flow sensor depending on which one your vehicle has also change fuel filter if have not done so in awhile add Lucas Fuel Injector cleaner to gas tank.
