So as of lately, I haven't been able to start the Regal without applying some gas. As I turn the key, the battery starts no problem, and the starter is clearly working, but she doesn't start until I apply some gas. If the car has been running 20+ minutes, and is shut off, it will start right back up, and doesn't give problems until the engine has cooled down. When it does start, it starts rough, clearly misfiring quite a bit, but then settles down.

Should I grab an IAC and throw some parts at it, or is there anywhere specific I should look? Let me know if I need to provide more info.

IAC, MAF, etc. I would first start with disassembling the throttle body and cleaning it all out. They get very gunky, sensors included. My car had a shaky idle, I cleaned the IAC with MAF cleaner and it helped it immensely.

Grabbed some MAF and TB cleaner, as well as an IAC because it was super cheap. I have no idea when anything was last cleaned, maybe it is just the gunk. Thanks for advice.
