It sounds like a bad fuel injector. Your engine is flooding which is why it dies when you push the gas pedal.

That is a possible cause alright. I would get a can of fast freeze spray from a motor parts factor. If its ok when cold but shuts off when hot its very likely.when the engine shuts off, spray the crank sensor and immediately start engine. If it starts and stays running its your crank sensor. Does it have a duel mass flywheel?? Some times if the crank sensor picks up off the flywheel and the duel mass is worn , it then runs out of sync with the cam shaft pick up sensor, which will cut the vehicle off. Just a shot in the dark? If you can drive vehicle when cold , check for vibrations whilst engine is cruising at steady speed. You will not feel vibrations under load. Keep us informed on how you get on.

My cheve wont crank and start well it will crank but it wont turn over and run so i can drive it it just cranks and keeps on trying but it never goes threw can anyone help me it is a 98 Chevrolet s10...

Start out by spraying a small amount of starting ether down the air cleaner. If it cranks and runs for just a few seconds at least, you probably have a fuel problem. Turn the key to "On" and listen: Do you hear a whirring noise, the fuel pump kicking in? If you do, then you need to replace your fuel filter. If not, you may have to replace the fuel pump. If the engine does not start up after the ether, you might check the distributor, make sure all the wires are plugged in. If they are, The coil may have failed.

Crank pposition sensor, known issue. Also there was a recall that your motor may fall under using incorrect oil.
