My 01 Mercedess500 will not stay running if I 't hold down

Customer Question

My 01 Mercedess500 will not stay running if I don't hold down the gas pedal for 10-15 seconds after cranking . After holding the gas pedal for a small amount of time it will idle just fine and not give me any further problems . But sometimes it takes a few times to crank it because as I'm holding down the gas pedal it sometimes seems to not be getting any gas
