1989 Chevy Camaro V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual

So my battery went too low to run the starter from the car sitting a couple weeks, no problem i'll just roll it backwards out the driveway and pop the clutch in reverse, right? Well I did so and the car fired over, made it 2 miles down the road, hit an intersection and the car slowly came to an idle, once the tachometer hit a grand it shut off, once again battery completely dead wouldn't crank, rolled it forward a few feet and popped the clutch in second and it started right up. Shut off immediately when I put in the clutch. Tried Map sensor, IACV, and throttle position sensor, no luck. Nursed it back home and put the battery on the charger. Tried it the next day and the starter will crank the motor until the battery dies but no spark or sputter, even with starting fluid. But still if you roll start it, it will fire right up, just won't idle and it runs extremely rough if u rev it. Any ideas?
