Hi, I usually suspect the MAP sensor when I see this symptom, but it can also be the throttle position sensor. Which engine do you have and is your check engine light on?

Why wouldn't it start/restart?


When you got the jump start, you were able to drive while the alternator tried to charge the dead battery. After you stopped at the other end, the battery died completely and may have shorted internally, which explains why your vehicle could not be jump started again. Obviously, that very dead battery will havet o be replaced.

Dies at light


You may have a sticking Torque Converter, or your Overdrive may be locking up. Try stopping (somewhere safe) in Neutral, and see if disengaging your overdrive will make a difference.

Battery will stay charged


Have the battery charged and tested and then test the charging system. You should never run a car with a very dead battery. that will burn out the alternator.

Car dies when going over really bumpy roads


If the brake pedal goes hard right BEFORE the car dies, and not after, then you could have a problem INSIDE the brake power booster. try to verify this next time it dies at a stop, if you can safely pull the dead car off the road into a driveway (or try to make it stall in a bumpy parking lot) - then before you try to restart the car, open the hood, pull off the rubber hose where it's plugged into the brake power booster --> you SHOULD hear a big "Swoosh" of air being sucked into the booster because there's supposed to be a strong vacuum there even after the car stops running. if you get nothing there, your car is dying of an excessive vacuum leak through the brake booster.= bad booster.

Why does my 2004 Ford Taurus start but wont stay running if I let off of the gas or try to put it in gear?


I'd be checking the throttle linkage stop on the throttle body/carb. Sounds like the throttle plates are closing off completely when you let off the pedal. Throtlle adjustment screw may have just backed out also.
