Is the check engine light on? Have you had your car looked at recently by a mechanic?

does the idle jump when it does run? can you keep it running if you give it gas ?

by jump i mean surge and dip (go up n down radically)

could be anything from the timing being off a few teeth to a bad fuel pressure vacuum
