It is either a bad sensor or plugged fuel filter. Very possible it is the throttle position sensor or leaky injector. Most likely bad sensor.. If check engine light is on, than surely bad sensor.

Check for gas or spark problem on the engine. Check that starting fluid does start the car for a few seconds before dying, indicating a fuel delivery problem, like a fuel pump or circuit to it.

If the car won't start with starting fluid sprayed into the intake, then the ignition system may be at fault, or engine timing.

Have you changed the fuel filter lately? If not do so. Sounds like fuel restriction. Filter usually on frame rail passenger side. Good luck!

2000 S10 no start

I'd use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, key on engine off, 60--66 psi with spider fuel system.
Engine cranking did you visually check for spark at the spark plugs? Engine cranking is there a fuel injector pulse?
Click on the link for fuel pump relay, you can check the fuse. At the fuel pump, gray wire is voltage, black is ground.

When your battery died, it probably wiped the PCM memory. Drive for 20 minutes in stop and go traffic then 10 minutes on the highway to reset the PCM sensors. Check to see if this helps at all. It's wierd to think about, but the PCM can control alot of the systems in the A/C.

check for a recall on the crank position sensor, it will make it stall also the fuel transfet pump might be getting weak, it is on the frame rail just under the drivers door it keeps pressure up in the line and when they get hot might not keep pressure up.dont listen to anyine sayong to spray AMYTHING down the throat .there are electronics in the air line into the air cleaner and at minimum kill a sensor but starting fluid and the like are extremely flamable and the 6.0l engine has a intake heater and will ignite the fluid and cause a explosion. yes it does happen, Im a diesel mechinic for 20 years.I have a 2000 diesel w/ 7.3. did you get a check engine lite on when it started or shut down?
