I have a problem where I'll start the car it runs for a few seconds then dies.
It always restarts and then runs fine.
The only other time this has happened is when the cam sensor (under the power steering Pump) wires were melted and touching, fixed that by putting a new pigtail in and a new senor.
This happens maybe once in 20 starts.

Any ideas?

If it's warm starts, it could be your fuel pressure regulator.

Only other thing I would check and clean is the throttle body, MAF, and the IAC valve. Electrical contact cleaner will work fine to clean the MAF sensor, but don't touch the wire. When you clean the PCV valve, feel free to push the pintle in but don't pull it out! The MAF has security torx screws and I think the IAC has regular torx screws.

do you have a aftermarket air filter (the ones that require oil). also new parts can go bad or be bad right out of the bax

A bad cam sensor won't cause it to stall out. A bad crank sensor would do that, but they are not known to do that when the car is cold...its usually when they are hot that they flake out. It sounds to me like this could be a fuel issue. Just out of curiosity when was the last time the fuel filter was changed or a can of sea foam was run thru the gas tank.

I changed the fuel filter shortly after I got the car, so probably February 2013 . Sea foam probably 3 or 5 months ago. I do have a 3m fuel system kit I've been meaning to try out.
