Default Car wont start Turns over

OK, 03 NA 155K Miles. Had Timing belt done just before I bought it. Had an Oil leak, replaced Oil Pressure Sender, oil leak gone. Now I can't get it to start. Turns over, I was getting it to start if I feathered the crap out of the throttle. It would run and then stall once warmed up. Removed and cleaned the IAC, replaced the PCV, New Plugs and Wires (gapped to .40). Since I have cleaned the IAC I cannot get it to start even feathering the throttle. (it get's close though).

So I am at the end of my rope. Any Ideas?

Since it won't start since you messed with the IAC, you might need a new one. if it was going bad, cleaning it might not have done anything and now it's completely messed up. Only a guess, so no money back if you buy one and it doesn't work.

Was thinking that myself, just didn't want to spend the $50 on top of everything else. Thanks for at least reaffirming what I was already thinking.

There's plenty of them on eBay if you can wait till someone ships it to you. They are going from $21 to $50.

Saw that, considering this is my only car and I have been relying on my Ex-Wife to shuttle me to get parts I might go that route. Especially since the parts stores nearest me don't have any in stock. The Upside is I am home with a Back Injury (if you can call that an upside) and I don't have to go to work at least.

You don't have to tell me about that. I've been housebound since the 9th of January since my back surgery. For awhile there it was hurting more after the surgery than before I had it. Now I can at least move around a bit. Sitting down in front of the computer isn't too bad but standing around brings pains to the back of both legs. Before the surgery, only had the Sciatic Nerve pain in one leg.

Yeah. I messed it up at work. Herniated Disc and the vertebrae area shifted out of position. Phys Therapy did nothing. Same leg pain. Looking at surgery too.

Crewzin; glad you came through the operation ok. Sounds like a slow healing process. I wish you both well.

Yea, that's what everybody is telling me, it takes time. Oh well, it only hurts when I laugh or in my case, only hurts when I walk.

OK, Replaced the IAC and same problem. Smells like the car is flooding. Tried the flood trick and it tries to start but still won't Could it be the Throttle Position Sensor?
