Default a few problems with my .12

hey guys im pretty new to the nitro rc car scene and have been having a few problems...

firstly my rc is a .12, and ive got a few problems with it starting right away, it stalls as soon as i go to take off and after the petrol runs out it doesnt turn back on till i give it a long rest.

whats wrong with it? does anyone have an idea on how i can fix it? i can do pretty much all of the work myself.

i have played with a few of the settings, but ive returned the idle control screw back to stock, and the other one i wouldnt have a clue what to do with.

any help would be appreciated. thanks guys.
