1993 toyota camry

Question Description

the car will start and idle for 30 seconds then sputters and dies.  ????


Final Answer

The battery is completely dead. The alternator does not work unless it is induced into working. The engine at idle will not do it. The engine has to be revved up for this to happen. When you boosted the battery you gave it enough to start the car and let it run for a while, that was it. You either need to charge the battery or get a new one.
