    Was the battery dead at the first attempt to start? Can you force it to run by using gas pedal?

    Yes the battery was dead and yes once its jumped I keep giving it gas but cuts back off. Could it be the IAC valve, or a relay?

    Was thinking it may need to relearn idle straregy. Try to keep it running as long as you can to see if it will ever idle correctly. May take a few minutes!
