Help please I have a 3.5 lhs 95. The battery was dead from lights being left on. It was running great with only 130k I jumped it now it won't idle but the engine light is not on and when I turn the keys off and on it's not giving me any codes. What should I do first thanks

fire it back up and feather the gas pedal until it stays running.
common when the computer has power removed for a while.

bad running from battery dead/replacement is always a relearn thing.
you appear to have some other problem as well.
but it's not absolutely dead in that it fires sometimes? just not enough or good enough to stay going?
last spark plug replacement?
probably a fuel pressure problem though. or timing.

if your timing has jumped you want to be careful.
probably best to pull the whole front cover and check that the marks line up.
if you don't know when the belt was last replaced, probably best just to do it anyways.
make sure you have good tension on the belt too.
