oil on throttle body?

So my car cranks up but turns off after i turn it on, i replaced my idle air control already, and i just recently checked the throttle body sensor and when i opened it, there was oil in it, could this be my problem?

Yes, it does happen. The oil is being pulled up through the p.c.v. and contaminating the intake.You could try the fix of using an oil separator from home depot.

Why do you need to get to the fuel injectors?
All you need to do is take off the cold air intake and upper intake. the shiny chrome thing is the fuel rail. I would not disconnect a direct fuel source because of oil problems.

No i know that, but my fuel injector got pulled out because i was using a cherry picker to put new mounts on my car but i didn't know that we weren't suppose to do that and well it disconnected it and now i have to take it off

You can leave the fuel rail on the lower intake. Change the motor mounts one side at the time. Disconnect the main nut on the motor mount. Connect the chain to a front header bolt and jack up.

Good choice. I had problems dropping my engine with both motor mounts installed. One at a time is easier.
The oil separator is a air compressor accessory. Someone had a big wright up on it years ago. Cut the p.v.c. line a few inches from the valve cover the oil separator will fit with a clamp.
I don't mind a little oil in my intake.
