Hi Susan,
I would do a full tune up. Change oil. oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap and rotor. I know it sounds like a lot, but this is considered a full tune up. If problem persists let me know and we can go from there.

    My truck had a full tune up for the winter. So what next?

    Clean the throttle body and replace the Throttle Position Sensor. This is one of those hit and miss troubles. It's either replace one(sensor) at a time, or take it to a mechanis where they can hook it up and do a diagnostic on it, which will most likely run you some money.

    Did you change all the items listed, plugs, wires, cap and rotor, etc?

SOURCE: Why won't my truck stay running when I'm not

Try cleaning your throttle body. Over time on high mileage vehicles, the throttle body butterfly valve will gunk up with sludge, and dirt. This will prevent air from entering the intake manifold while the engine is idling, causing low idle/stalling. A can of throttle body/carb cleaner will do the job. First, remove the intake tube to get to the butterfly valve. Spray a small amount of throttle body cleaner directly into the intake, and wipe any excess fluid with a cloth. Also, inspect your air filter. I hope this helps

Car starts right up but 2 seconds dies, u can start it right up again & it dies again, won't run. has good spark & fuel pressure good when dies


You are on the right track by finding the injector pulse missing.
The computer grounds the injectors based on signals from the cam and crank sensors. You may have to use a scanner to check for trouble codes in the computer and watch the sensors work.
The problem could also be a relay or the key switch.

Starts but won't stay running


Turn off all your accesories and turn the key forward, but dont start it. You should hear the pump kick on for 2-3 seconds. Prime the system a few times then start it. This will narrow your diagnosis

It won't die when pulling the relay because it has another power path to the fuel pump through the oil pressure switch . Fuel Pump Electrical Circuits Description and Operation watch this video on fuel pump control , shows chrysler first , ford ,then gm . wait for gm an he explains the oil pressure switch . Plus when it won't start ,don't guess or theorize ! Test what's missing ? check for spark , no spark check ignition system , coil's , ignition module , crank sensor etc... has spark ,do a fuel pressure test etc... don't think computer , when it won't start does the check engine light come on with the key on run not start . If light is lit ,nothing wrong with the cumputer . If want to fix cars you really should take some automotive classes . Test don't guess .Watch some other videos crank no start videos etc...
