    Engine Starts, then dies.

    I had my 30k service done on 1/12/07 (on my Birthday )
    That Saturday, I went to start the car, the motor kicks over and then dies. It took 3 to 4 tries until it started like normal.

    Today, this is the second time it happened again. Same as Before, the engine starts to turn over and then dies.

    This has never happen before until now.
    Now the car was not cold, It was started several times durring the day, and I drive it daily.

    I'm going to bring the car back to the dealer that did the 30k service to correct this. I have a feeling that something was not properly connected.

    Anyone have any idea what could cause this so I can inform the dealer to check that area.

    Although mine does not die right after I start it, it does come very close. It seems that it only has this problem when the engine is up to full temp. I used to think that it was because of the BOV that was on the car when I bought it, but now I have the stocker back on and it still does it. I was told that the computer needed to re-learn due to the swap, but that was almost 3 weeks ago???
