Default Murano

I have a 2003 murano that after driving for 5+ minutes to get warm, I shut the car off then restart and it dies. When starting I do not touch the gas and it will die. If I touch the gas to rev it will stay running and run but at a much lower rpm. Any ideas on what the problem could be?

how many miles on the car? is check engine light on?
it is hard enough to find problem when a car is in front of you, over the net, it is basically impossible, but if i had to guess i'd say you most likely have electrical issue, less likely dirty idle air passage and idle solenoid may be getting stock. you need to clean throttle body, and all bypass air canals in it. also remove idle solenoid and clean its valve\actuator. or find good diagnostic shop and let them find the problem.

idle air control valve comes to mind like delta suggested.
