a jump it will start but acts funny low idle
(drive with two feet to keep it running)and is
an automatic so no need for two feet driving
please help dont know what to do

It may be running like that due to the battery being low. It needs to be charged back up. So there is what is called a parasitic draw on the battery. You may have to take it into a shop to be looked at.
