Check all of the vaccum lines and the one behind the throttle body also try some STP gas treatment and if this helps replace your fuel filter also make sure you have at less a half tank of gas before you add the STP.

Dies when I first start have to restart a few times and dies at stop light unless it gets a little gas

This is usually a problem caused by a bad water temperature sensor. There are usually 2 sensors with one working the temperature gauge and the second working engine controls.

The "cold start" sequence is similar to a choke in old cars. It needs the signal from the water sensor to trigger the cold start sequence. The cold start sequence enriches the fuel charge, adjusts timing, and increases idle speed until the engine gets a little warm.

Now if stalling when warm, you have other issues. Manifold runners are a problem on some engines.

1990 f150 302 v8 5.0 sputtered and died and now wont start. What could be the problem?

Turn the ignition switch to run, without starting it. You should hear the electric fuel pump, in the gas tank, run for about 3 to 4 seconds, until it builds to proper pressure. If it is not humming along it needs replaced.

First starting in the morning the 1996 jeep cherokee classic fires right up, backs out of the driveway, is able to go into forward and go down the block, at the stop sign there, it dies, and, until it...

Check out your cold start choke. It is designed to cause your fuel mixture to run "rich" until it warms up. It is basically a heat sensitive coil that reacts to heat from the exhaust manifold.

My 2002 Taurus runs fine until I stop at a stop sign or stop light. It then dies but starts right back up and goes fine until the next time I stop. Please help.

sounds like a bad fuel pump...have this looked at by your mechanic...changed strainer and fuel filter at the same time..and if its been a while, the air filter too just to make sure that everything is breathing and working fine
