Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Dodge Ram V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles

My pickup wouldn't start due to corrosion on the battery. I cleaned off the corrosion with coca cola and it started up. But now my pickup won't keep running unless I keep my foot on the gas and when I left off it immediately dies. What is the problem?

Do you

Hi, Will it idle with slightly open throttle? If so, I'd clean the throttle-body. Check throttle-body sensors, where applicable. Check for trouble codes, some the national brand autostores used to check possible codes for free.
