Default 99 Camry wont start

Hi, I have a 99 Camry, 120000 miles. Recently the car did not start.
Every time I turn the engine on, I have to push to accelerator pad to
keep it running otherwise the engine will turn off. After I push the
pad for a few minutes, it becomes OK to go. I thought it was a battery
problem so I got a new battery. The car ran OK for a few days, then the
problem came back. I do not know what is wrong. Could anyone help?

Thanks,

qq

Could be the alternator. It is not charging.

Take it to autozone and get a battery/alternator check
It is free...

I don't think that's the problem, since the car starts okay but then seems
to starve out, says the writer.
It doesn't sound electrical, but more like fuel starvation for some reason,
either clogged jets in the fuel injection, or perhaps if the fuel filter has
never been changed, it could be a clogged fuel filter. But I think it's
time for a mechanic to look at it if the two fuel questions are answered and
there's still a problem.

It's probably caused by the "IDLE SPEED CONTROL VALVE". Sometimes
cleaning the valve will solve the problem. If not, you'll need to
replace it with a new one; it's expensive (about $200 + installation)!

If you want the IAC valve installed correctly at a Toyota dealer, plan on
spending just north of $400 for the job. They'll do it right...they do ALOT
of them so there's no guess-work, which is what you'll get at Firestone or
Pep Boys.
It's an expensive repair, but your problem will go away for a long time...at
least a year or so.
