Engine dies after starting
One day my truck had the problem of when i would start it, it wouldn't stay running. I would get it started and it would die. If i gave it some throttle it would keep running but as soon as I let off it would die again. It took about 5 times before it would stay running. Any ideas? It's an '01 silverado with a 5.3L.Mike - OREGON

It happened a couple weeks after I replaced my fuel filter. Thanks for the idea though.

I have a 93 that did that to me 2 times. I will share what it was on mine. I did what you did. I did a full tune-up, fuel filter, dry gas ect. One day I was leaving work, wouldnt stay running at an idle. I would have to ride the gas and brake. Then I pulled into the gas station to fill up and bam, nothing. It was the fuel pump. Then a few year later, the same problem again. It was the fuel pump. So I hope that this helps shed some light. Oh, another hint or tip. If you have more than a half a tank, I found it easier to take the bed off.....

Alright, thanks for the insight. I replaced the fuel pump on my '98 dodge ram when I had it. We couldn't get the bed bolts loose so we pulled the full fuel tank. It wasn't too bad but would rather not do it again lol. I know i need to do a full tune-up just haven't had the time yet.
