Question about 2002 Toyota Tundra
Truck was running fine until a door was left open and dome light drained the battery. Jump started truck but it was running very rough and kept stalling. I replaced fuel filter and truck seemed to run fine. Next day same problem, rough starting, won't idle, and stalls. I checked pcv for vacuum and it seems to be fine. Any advice?
Check the voltage of battery with voltmeter.. It is sometimes possible that if voltage of battery drops and jump start is needed, your computer will only charge to the last voltage that was recognized which would be when jumped...Try and charge the battery if possible I would actually suggest that you have your battery tested at local auto parts store and if it is presumed in good condition ,let them charge for you to max capacity . If battery has been tested and labeled as no good replace if necessary... Oh, and first thing you should do is make sure your positive and negative battery connections are clean and tight...if this didnt fix problem please give more info on what was found when advice above was followed...Good Luck!!!!

The throttle body needs cleaning. It has some carbon build up, and when the battery went dead the computer lost its learned values, one of which is base throttle position. Now its reset back to factory specs, not accounting for a dirty throttle body. Seen it a million times
