What does the battery voltage read when the engine is at idle?
That is my main problem,the engine will not idle on its own. I have to keep my foot on gas peddle to keep her running.

It seems for sure I need a new battery,but that being said will that fix my idle problem?
I plan to buy a new a battery in the morning.
