I can jump start my car, but it only runs when i have my foot on the gas. It will run as long as my foot is on the gas, but as soon as I release the gas, the RPM drops to 0 and the engine shuts off and the battery meter slowly goes from 14 V to 0 V. Im trying to figure out if it is the battery, the alternator, or the voltage regulator. (it could be something else but my limited knowledge of cars gets me thinking it is one of these) any help is appreciated, what is wrong?

First thing I'd do there is charge the battery using a battery charger, then have it load tested. Nothing else in the system can be properly tested if the battery will not pass that test. Once that has been done and if the battery is bad, you have r ... 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

My 90 year old pop has a 95 Sonoma. Ninety % of the time it runs fine. Ten % of the time it wont stay running when you take your foot off the gas. RPMs go straight to 0 and the truck stalls. Normally, with this truck, when you take your foot off the gas it will go to 500RPMs and hold steady and never threaten to stall. In it's failing mode it's as though it forgot to go into idle. It doesn't matter if the truck is cold or hot. Then as quickly as it started failing it will start working fine. Thi
