Before someone mention it... I did search before I ask and I get error message:

Here is my question or problem with the car; Yesterday after work I stop at a gas station to fill up the tires with air and after trying to start the car the car will start fine but as soon I let the gas pedal go the car will shut down. I drove all the way home with one feet on the gas and the other on the brakes to avoid the RPMS to go lower than 1,000 rpms. The funny thing is that I made it all the way to the advance auto part by my house and after that the car didn't have the symptoms. Today I made it to work with out no problems. I just want to find out what's wrong and get it fix so it won't happen again.

ps. there's no engine light on.

ps2. Anyone?

Does anyone have any clue what could it be?

Fuel filter or Fuel pump or fuel injector are just a couple of guesses without more information? Like is the check engine light on yet, sometimes takes awhile? Or how many miles are on the vehicle etc.... Highly doubt it was caused by adding air to the tires.Were you noticing any problems before the car started acting up?

Sounds like a vacuum leak but it shouldn't have fixed itself...
