Hi Dina:
Try adjusting the idle stop on the carb. With the engine off, move the throttle linkage from slow to fast, then back to slow. There should be an adjustable stop (screw) that you can screw in a bit at a time until you get an idle speed that won't stall when it is in gear (automatic can be more of a problem than standard)

Some models have to be retaught how to idle once the battery dies, so you need to start the truck and feather the gas peddle to keep it running and do this for a few minutes, the computer has to relearn how to idle the engine.

well you narrowed it down to a fuel problem. not sure about your model, but most cars have a fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail to reduce un needed pressures. that could possibly be bad. its cylinder in shape and has a vacuum hose connected to it. check the hose and that unit.

Engine runs but you have to feather gas pedal to keep running . is this a fuel pump problem or carb.

For a problem like this there could be many things wrong. Fuel pump, filter, fuel pressure regulator, clogged injectors on the throttle body, bad plugs, distributor cap, rotor or plug wires or just bad gas. I would start with the cap/rotor. It is the easiest thing to get to and easiest to check. After that the plugs and wires. If all of this is good use the check engine light and pull the codes. This will tell you if any sensors are out. After that if the problem is still there run a heavy dose of fuel system cleaner through the gas and then change the fuel filter. If none of this helps the last thing it could be is the timing. If it is hard to start and wants to die out while idling the timing could be off or the vacumn advance hose could be disconnected. If any of this helps or you just want more information please feel free to contact me,.

Runs cold, but dies when up to temp.

Crank sensor. When it cuts off again spray some water on it and see if it will start.

1993 grand prix dying

provided you don't have a vacuum leak, (check all hoses for tightness and cracks with engine running) it's probably your idle air control valve or sensor.

Probably your coil pack. That's usually how they act. They'll give you one extra chance to get home, and that's it. If it's not that then it's probably the fuel pump or filter, but the fact that it started again leads me to believe it's your coil pack.

1989 Cadillac Eldorado dies right after I start it

you could see if you have a friend that could help you bye starting the car for you and you need to un hook the top of air box as if you were going to change the breather take a small coke bottle and pour about 1 cup of gas in your bottle hold your breather hose up and pour about 1/2 shot glass gas down the hose and see if that alows it to continue to run if it does you may have a bad or weak fuel pump but I will warn you to be careful when dealing with gasoline do not go to overboard use your best judgement
