It just happened to me. Could it be the sensor in the throttle body just needing cleaned and oiled? And does the sensor really require a new gasket?

Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. A faulty sensor on the throttle body will not cause the engine to not turn over. Additionally, sensors are not oiled in any fashion. This sounds more like a starter or battery issue. If you had a sensor issue you would have codes. If you have any questions, please feel free to reply.

The battery terminals are a bit dirty. I'll clean them off but it starts fine when it's cold. Just not warm. Then if it does start it will die unless I keep the gas at 2500rpm for a bit

Is the check engine light on when it is running?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't belive so. My "ultra Guage" says there are no trouble codes. I'll check in a few hours when I'm back and get back to you. Thanks.
