The car starts and runs for 2 or 3 sec. then dies


Was the fuel system flushed of all old fuel ? do that. This included the lines and the filter and the fuel injectors. Use a product called "CHEMTOOL" it is made by Berrymans and available at any auto parts store.

I have a 89 gmc 2500hd 350 some times it will start run for 30 seconds or so than it just dies after a few more times of doing that it will run just fine


If yoy ran out of gas and have fuel injection it might be vapor locked. You'll have to bleed the injectors to let the air out. Running out of gas lets air bubbles in.

88 Chev Van 30 350 with hydro boost pump seized/brakes locked up.


to relieve the brake pressure to move the vehicle , open the bleeder ******* at each wheel for a half second
but you will have to replace the failed hydro booster unit or you will get the same problem back or have no brake assist during braking

1994 Chev Astro 4.3L AWD "W" OBD Code 43 168K Miles


code 43, i would expect with running rough but that's not the cause , its a result ,if the system detects noise (knock) it will try to compensate by retarding the timing to save the motor , built in self preservation , i hope your not running on 2 year old gas , i'd be amazed its even running at all , gas varnishes up bad enough in 6 months to 1 year , i suggest getting some fuel additive in there to stabilize and clean the fuel system , or have it drained and start over with fresh gas and go from there . cheers .

Check the crankshaft position sensor. If the plug is loose or the sensor itself is bad it will cause similar problems
