In some vehicles the computer "forgets" how to idle when the battery is disconnected. Fortunately the fix is to simply hold the idle at about 800rpm or so with the throttle. It should learn how to idle after a few minutes.

Sounds like a vacuum leak. You should be able to hear it at your hoses and \or connections.Around the intake manifold you can spray brake cleaner at the gaps. If the idle changes then your on to something

1994 jeep, wont start, wont run


It sounds like you may have a bad connection somewhere. Start with your battery cables and then look at all of your ground wires as well. When you try to start your jeep see if the wires from the battery get hot.

My dodge durango will not stay running


Will not idle unless gas is applied?
Will stay idle after a bit of running?

First i'd recomend starting off with a new battery if yours is older, durangos have a quirk with voltages and sometimes wont play with 12v.
Also the TPS could be an issue.

Just changed out the alternator. car been sitting


Cars that are idle for a long time are often difficult to start.

One solution is to tow them in gear (not so hard on the battery).

CAR WONT IDLE, NOT ALTERNATOR


The computer loses it's memory when it is disconnected from the battery for any amount of time. Part of this is the engine idle. The fastest way to "cure" this (takes about 5 mins) is to start it up and give it enough gas to keep it running. Then let off the gas so that it ALMOST stalls and give it a little more gas to keep it running. Repeat about 5-10 times (you will notice it improving). You will need to do this with the AC on and with it off as the idle requirements are different. This worked great in my standard transmission. In the automatic, it's possible you may need to also do the same while it is in the various gears. It's a FAST fix though!
