you might have some gunk or something in your fuel or injectors. you could try using "gumout" or some kind of injector cleaner. other than that it you could check your spark plugs and make sure your getting a spark from them all and your cables are fully connected

yeah I mean it wouldn't start friday then I got it to start saturday. now it won't stay Idle. I'm pretty sure it ain't the wires or spark plugs. It did skip a couple of times when I got it started at first.

You can check your idle air control motor.
