Question about Cars & Trucks
Choke operates properly. Idles down. Throttle response good then dies. All from cold start. Then starts fine warm but no power no throttle. When it dies its abrupt it doesnt sputter out.
If there is electronic throttle then probably needs replacement, get second hand one , or otherwise can try to take it out and clean it, if there is an access to electronic part of it try it open carefully and clean contacts with some alcohol, sometimes it helps

SOURCE: Stalls when engne warms up
Your ECT (Engine Coolant Temp) sensor is bad. What's happening is at cold start it richens up the fuel mixture and as it warms up the ECM thinks it's still cold and essentially the "choke" is still on. Also check your coolant level. If you don't have enough coolant in you engine/radiator, the ECT doesn't know what to do so it thinks it's cold.

I have same problem, Chevy told me it was probably a seal affecting fuel air ratio and when warm seal expanded to stop air leak. I forget which seal but they also said to check plastic case around seal because it will warp and may also need to be replaced. It was located near top center of engine. Please let me know if you figure it out.
