Question about 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1997 S10 pickup starts then shuts off in 2-4 seconds

My 1997 S10 pickup just died on me yesterday. I thought I was runningout of gas when I pressed the accelerator because it hesitated badlythen shut off. I pushed it to a nearby gas station and put in 4gallons. I then started the truck. It ran for about 2-3 seconds afterit turned over, then it sputtered, shook and shut off. This sequencehappened every time I tried to start it. Is it the fuel filter? Same problem. Changed fuel filter, plugs, wires, air filter, used fuel injector cleaner. Should I clean the egr valve? I am a novice and don't want to screw it up.

When its in that not running stage or it dies you need to try and shoot a little starting fluid or gasoline into the throttle body or air cleaner and try and start it again .. If it starts then we know you have a fuel pump going out .. and its in the gas tank .. thanks Jerry and holler if you need more..

    you still might need to check the fuel pressure .. sounds like its starving for fuel .. what I do in a case like this I try to shoot a little fuel into the throttle body while reving the engine up and see if it will come above an idle this will tell you if its starving from not enough fuel... try that .. thanks again Jerry .

2000 S10 no start


I'd use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, key on engine off, 60--66 psi with spider fuel system.
Engine cranking did you visually check for spark at the spark plugs? Engine cranking is there a fuel injector pulse?https://s8.postimg.org/50arofh11/fuel_pump.jpg
Click on the link for fuel pump relay, you can check the fuse. At the fuel pump, gray wire is voltage, black is ground.
