As soon as i start the car the RPM needle jumps up and then drops and the car shuts of no matter if I give the car gas or not, sometimes sounding like a light backfire. After 40 min of this it finally responded to me pressing on the gas peddle and I was able to drive it back to work, all though the car sounded like it was sputtering and ready to turn back off. back at work I was able to turn the car off and on, when the car was on how ever the RPM needle would hover under 1k RPM and if I press on the gas to rapidly the car would shut off or act like it was going to.

One thing I know needs to be replaced on this car is the cat, would that cause this type of issue? I just dropped of my car with the mechanic for this issue, wondering if any one had an idea of what else it might be? Thanks!

something similar happened on my old car which had a cold air intake. after winter, the filter was so clogged that the engine couldn't breathe and kept shutting off. might not be your problem, be just my experience with a similar issue. (check your filter?)

good luck
