Hey everyone. I have a 99 cobra with a 03 cobra motor, recently went on leave for 3 weeks and let the cobra sit. Battery was dead when I came home so I jumped it. Now the car will start but will die immediately after firing up.

If I give it a decent amount of gas it'll stay running but will misfire the whole time. Seems to clear up a little after 2k

Thanks

If it stays running while you give it gas, it's not a PATs issue. PATS would shut it down within 2 seconds or so.

After it dies, does it have enough juice to crank again?

Do you have any codes?

How do your COPs and spark plugs look?

How has the weather been? Has it been damp or rainy?
I'm wondering if you might have moisture that's hindering your spark. After I let mine sit for a few damp weeks she sputtered and misfired like crazy at low RPM until she warmed up and evaporated any moisture.

yeah it will keep cranking and firing. I'm getting ready to pull the plugs out today and test fuel pressure

I unplugged an injector at a time and it made no difference in how it ran. So it's either not enough fuel or its a spark issue. Or the MAF is going funny.
