    Car Won't stay running

    I went to start my 2001 WS6 last night and it would turn over and as soon as it would start up it wouldn't idle, it would shut back off. It did this three times and then on the fourth it started up and was fine. Anyone know the reason for this? Should I be worried or just not worry about it if it doesn't happen again? I know when my Cobra would do this it meant the Idle Air Control Valve was bad, but once it didn't stay running once, it wouldn't stay running until I changed the valve or cleaned it out. Please Help!

    Has anyone ever noticed a click or rattle noise when you're riding along and press the gas pedal. Right when the car accelerates it makes this clicking noise as soon as you press the pedal. It sounds like it's coming from the top of the engine compartment or behind the dash. Anyone have any idea?

    The noise could be a little running 91+? Is your security light flashing after the car dies? Did you reoil your k&n air filter....if you have one that is.

    Get some electrical cleaner and clean the MAF filaments...and if it was me i'd take the TB off and clean it and the IAC real good with carb cleaner.
