Default car cranks but will not start

Ok, here'* the issue. The car will crank over but will not start, unless you hold the pedal to the floor. Then it will start and as long as you keep the pedal at half to all the way to the floor it will stay running, but take your foot off and it dies. No codes, getting fuel. I'm lost, help please.

Welcome to the Bonneville Forum.

First thing you should do is test your Throttle position sensor. https://www.gmforum.com/t279319/

Hi KARBEAR;

Welcome to the Bonneville Forum.

Please add your year and trim of your vehicle to your signature line. That way when you start asking questions in other areas of the forum, we all have a better idea on how to assist you. Click on "Quick Links" above, go down to "User Control Panel" and then click on "Edit your Signature" It'* pretty straight forward from there.
