Sounds like you have a vacuum leak, a problem with the wiring, or a bad PCM. Check wiring for pinched, chafed, pierced, or broken wires. Make sure vacuum supply is good, and not collapsing when the vehicle is running. Beyond that, a trip to the dealer may be in order.

1988 gmc runs for a little but dies. Check your c.t.s that checks the temp. of your coolent and when it fails it tells computor engin is hot, t.p.s takes over closes butterfly and chocks the air to keep engine from runnin to lean. If engine is not hot it will flood and stop runnin then some time will go by befor truck tries to start. May not be probablem but its a thought. c.t.s is located on manifold by top radiator hose neck. My truck was fine than sat had simmilor problem when i went to use again thats what i changed and seems to be back to normal. Hope this helps.

Most likely you need a new Ignition switch. The small "tickler" wires on your solenoid are staying on. You can disconnect the small wire from the Solenoid and then put a test light on it. Turn the Ignition to Start and see if the wire stays hot when you release the key.
Another problem you could have is the Starter has such a bad intermittent short in it, that it keeps the points welded together after the key is released from the Start position. You can get a starter Draw test done at some parts stores like Autozone or Oreillys to name a few, they do it free and on the truck.
Let me know the result please,

I wouldn't replace the plugs, just yet. This sounds like the vent solenoid. They are usually around the fuel tank and sometimes located on the charcoal canister, Which I believe is where yours is. Test it with 12 volts it should click. if it doesn't then replace this. On newer cars like yours, when the vent or purge solenoids malfunction, they will pop an 02 code. If the solenoid clicks then check the wires right at the plug . they tend to break there. And the gasket your looking for is the intake manifold gasket. And looking for the solenoid, look under the emissions and EVAP systems.
