Clean the Mass air flow (MAF) sensor and the throttle body. I use brake clean and a tooth brush for the throttle. Clean around the throttle plate and the back of it as best as possible. Start the engine (it will take a second or two) Then rev it up and spray some into the throttle. Just spray the MAF, both sides, don't use the brush on it, you could break a $100 part.

Put in a new battery it runs good but when I come to a stop it dies, want idle?

TPS,throttle position sensor, idle air valve, both @ throttlebody ! replace them both, also change the AIR & FUEL FILTERS ! ONE MORE THING, REPLACE THE EGR VALVE, they go bad, get all cloogged up, with carbon ! you would'nt believe it ! your OXYGEN SENSOR , whens the last time you changed that, DO IT !

Engine bogs out and dies when excellerate

Check your HT leads may be perished, If you spray CRC or some sort of engine start aerosol throughout the engine bay at night or in the dark you will see small sparks arcing out of the plug leads. Hope this helps
