Check IAC motor.
Try running vehicle with MAF disconnected.
Could be anything, really, fuel pump, clogged injectors, bad plugs/wires, etc...

it may be a clogged fuel filter.

TRUCK BATTERY DIES,STARTS WHEN JUMPED BUT WONT STAY RUNNING WITHOUT FOOT ON GAS


Some models have to be retaught how to idle once the battery dies, so you need to start the truck and feather the gas peddle to keep it running and do this for a few minutes, the computer has to relearn how to idle the engine.
