Check you Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve (EGR) its probably full of carbon and has stuck open allowing too much exhaust gases into the intake manifold starving the engine of oxygen and killing it but when you add gas it stays running because of physics and it is adding more fuel and sucking more clean air. If the EGR is dirty clean it with some carb cleaner if that don't work replace it. also check your Idle Air Control valve (IAC) these also tend to get dirty but not like the EGR valve. if it is clean I would still replace due to the fact that it is an small electric motor that is working all the time.

My 1996 Ford F150 Super Cab wont start without stepping on the gas pedal and when you put it into gear it dies..please help!!

I would check your fuel pressure at the motor on the fuel rail see if you are getting enough pressure. The fuel filter might be getting plugged causing lack of fuel. If it seems to get enough fuel just won't stay at the proper rpm throttle positioning sensor on the intake might not be working properly.

Ford f150 2003 - engine stalls during start-up, only stays on if gas pedal is pressed during start.

It sounds like it is getting too much fuel. Holding down the gas does the opposite of what you may think, it shuts the fuel flow off on fuel injected cars. You may have a leaking fuel injector or a bad fuel pressure regulator.
