Would it be possible for you to provide us with less details? I'm overwhelmed with all the information.

With this amount of information my answer would be:

1. Insert Debit/Credit Card
2. Enter PIN/Zip Code
3. Select Grade

Seriously though, can you elaborate. No one knows what you are asking.

Your TPS(throttle position sensor) may be unplugged or going bad.
IAC(idle air control) valve may not be working

"pumping" the gas pedal on a fuel injected engine doesn't do the same thing it did with a carburetor engine.
It just lets in more air, not more fuel.

MAF sensor may need to be cleaned.

Computer already lets in more air for starting
