Possibly a weak fuel pump, idle air control valve, vacuum leaks, or loose or damaged wiring in the ignition system. Check for vacuum leaks first. That's the only one that won't cost anything. Make sure all intake bolts are tight, and all hoses are connected properly and in good condition.

There are a few other things taht could be causing fuel starvation. First of all, did you pull the injectors and clean out the individual filters? There are small, conical screens inside the top of each injector, and they could be clogged. Second, There could be some carbon build-up on the intake valves, which would act like a sponge for the fuel after initial start-up. A can of BG44K fuel system cleaner from NAPA will get rid of that. If it is neither of these, the fuel pressure regulator could be leaking. Other than this, the car would need to be diagnosed by a shop before action is taken. I hope this helps you!

Testimonial: "I ended up taking the car to a local shop for diagnosis. It turns out that the fuel pump is week and not supplying enough pressure to the motor. "

replace your injectors. your vehicle is getting the fuel to start from the starter fluid. however the injectors arent giving it the gas that it needs to stay cranked

the fuel pressure regulator is located on fuel rack, top of motor.follow the chrome fuel lines on top of motor to the end next to drivers side of motor and you will see a round cylinder. that cylinder is your fuel pressure regulator.make sure to let pressure off those fuel lines before removig the regulator. you should have a valve on the fuel rack that looks like a tire valve, insert something pointed into that valve and gas will come out.that's the way you releive the pressure from the fuel pump.be advised that gas should come out of that valve, cover your eyes and face.
