    Default Truck starts but dies a few times before it'll stay running

    I have an '88 1500 with a '95 engine that will start up and run for about 3 seconds then die. After a few times doing this it will finally stay running. The oil pressure sensor was unplugged but still did the same thing once it was plugged back in. I replaced the fuel filter and had the pump out and it seemed to be working. Any suggestions?

    Welcome to the club. Tell us more about your engine swap. Is the '95 still TBI?
