Re-starts fine after it's warmed up. Accelerates good. Not getting any codes.

Recently did the LIM, no longer leaking coolant. Changed the thermostat. Cleaned the MAF sensor. Checked for vacuum-leaks. Fuel injectors are new and clicking. Changed spark plugs today, old ones looked normal. Battery is good. Oil looks good. A/C works.

I have searched the forums and the internet and I am getting lost.

I only got 69K on this thing. Any directions?

Unbolted the EGR and the car started right up.

Replaced the EGR today, must not have been the problem. Car still doesn't want to start.

Possibly idle air control (IAC) or wiring from/to the throttle body, or TPS

Thanks for the reply.

I went and picked up a new IAC and swapped it in real quick but the car still doesn't want to start.

mine used to do that. would baaarely start unless i had my foot pushing the gas down a little bit. got to the point where i could barely drive the dam thing because it would just die while i was driving it unless i had my left foot use the brake, and shift into N and keep my right foot on the gas if i were stopping or it would die. ended up being my FPR. i unbolted the old one (which was all nice and covered in rust) and replaced it with one from autozone and it fixed everything, and still runs fine today. i would try that next if you dont have any vacuum leaks
