Default Are these 2 problems related?

I'm having problems starting the car (cold or warm). It generally takes 2, 3 or 4 turns of the key to start the thing and when it finally starts it is barely idling until I kick down the throttle a little and then it idles fine. Now for problem number 2, if I idle the vehicle for a couple minutes (warm vehicle) and then drive it at a slow speed (less than 10 mph) it stalls on me (this has happened several times now). I guess what Im looking for is could these 2 problems be related? Is it a fuel problem or electrical? Diagnosing is not my strong suit. But with some ideas I could check a few things out. I'm not getting any codes either. Thanks in advance.

I vote for fuel problems. Replaced your air and fuel filters recently? How many miles on the thing?

Just changed the fuel filter this last weekend air filter about 1000 ago. 137,xxx on the car. My initial thinking was fuel too. I just didn't want to think fuel pump or injectors.

Had the same thing happening to me several months ago, changed the air and fuel filters nothing. Took it to the mechanic. I figured it for a fuel pump problem. I was half right. It ended up being the Fuel Pump Regulator. Runs fine now.

Welp this could be the problem maybe in your case Test your TPS sensor sometimes it goes bad and doesnt hold your car at idle well or at low speeds but if you do the fuel regulator and it is still messed up I dont think It would be injectors but it could be pump or TPS
