I just realized I posted in the wrong forum previously.....

It seems I've had this come and go.
Warm and cold starts.
Starts up and then RPM drops right back down to zero.

any ideas or faqs to point me to?
Thanks!

EDIT:
OK codes:
P1451 auxiliary emissions controls
P1401 auxiliary emissions controls

Dumb question:
OK how do I hold the throttle slightly open?
I need pics and or step by step. I will search...


Additional info:
I drove the car all weekend and was dangerously low on fuel AND I parked on my steep driveway outside last night. It was probably the coldest night last night too.
I decided to put in about 2 gallons of gas just now via gas can. It still does not start, it just keeps cranking.

So I moved my car from the steep driveway to the street....
started up fine.
I still notice a bit of a rough idle or something going on while sitting at a light.
Perhaps clean/replace EGR?
