I cleaned the t/b with t/b cleaner after replacing the idle control valve. Battery went dead after a few tries so was told it may be my alternator but turns out to have been a bad battery. Replaced the battery and now i have power.. car starts but back to square one! It'll start but cuts right back off. Ok i forgot once when i had the bad battery i tried starting it with a jump and held my foot down on the accelerator and it stayed idled until i took my foot off and "then" it cut off.. smh HELP!!!
