Why would a vehicle stall unless you pump the gas pedal?

Sounds like a fuel delivery problem (possibly fuel pump) or a clogged fuel filter. Try checking the vacuum lines. I own a 92 Cadillac Seville and the exact same thing happens. It makes me want to drive it off a cliff. I thought it could be a clogged throttle body so I spent about 3 hours cleaning it and no result. If you ever figure out this problem please tell me what it was. car is starting up sometimes when has been running a while on restart 94 jetta what could be the problem? Try adjusting your idle speed. We own a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee that had the same thing happen. It ended up being a bad alternator, not what i was expecting but if you cant think of anything else give that a shot.

I am experiencing a similar problem with my 1999 Subaru Impreza. Generally when my car sits for a day or the temperature drops, the car will sputter upon startup until I push on the gas pedal. Sometimes it will even stall during this sputter. Basically it sounds like it has a fuel starvation problem upon startup on colder days. My check engine light finally came on and it turned out to be a problem with my Idle Air Control Valve (IACV). I took it apart and sprayed it with brake parts cleaner. I haven't had a problem since.

It would be the rubber pad that sits on your brake pedal. Unless they were referring to brake pads, which are the pads which enables your vehicle to stop by pressing the brake pedal.

The vehicle would stall when put in gear would be the fuel pump. The fuel pump is very weak which would explain why in neutral the vehicle starts if it gear it would have to have more gas.

yes once the ignition control module heats up it would cause the vehicle to stall. usually after it cools down the vehicle will restart again.

AC runs on the battery. If the car is off and you run the AC, then start the car, it will stall.

A problem in the fuel line could cause it to stall. On a stick shift, letting off the clutch too soon would cause the vehicle to stall.
