Default if my car cannot idle right after it is started, what might be causing it and how can it be fixed?

it might just need a tune up, or it might be a clogged up fuel filter. I have had that problem before

I thnk its the altinator, if it turns over but it shuts right away, you can see if its that by connnecting cables from a diffrent car or a battery booster pack, if it gos off as soon as you take the cables off means its the Alltinator.

star Small With fairly inexpensive stuff. A "wonder drug" it Fuel Injector cleaner. just get a bottle at the gas station, and pour it into a full tank of gas. that may fix it. Check your Spark Plugs and Plug Wires, also the fuel filter could be clogged too. . those are the simple inexpensive things. if that doesn't fix it. listen for an Audible Humming near the rear of the car, in the gas tank of most fuel injected cars is a High Pressure Fuel Pump, if you can hear it, it's going bad. the worst case could be your injectors or the computer thingy's that control the injectors.

If you don't have any idiot lights lit then I would take it to a mechanic that offers free estimates. Either he can point you in the right direction of give you a fair rate to get it taken care of. A thorough tune-up shouldn't cost you more then $250. It will cost much less if you do it yourself.
