Could be the fuel pump/injectors not working properly. It cant take the load of the car when you accelerate and it goes into gear.

No exceleration now truck wont start

Fuel pump relay, turning the ignition on runs the fuel pump for about two seconds to pressure the fuel rail to start, then the fuel pump relay takes over once engine is started, it relies on a signal from the ignition or ECU (to say keep running). Either the relay has gone down or the relay has lost the signal. Don't bypass the relay, it's a safety feature, to stop the fuel pump if a fuel line ruptures.

Dies on exceleration

Have you had your fuel pressure tested? Low pressure and/or volume could cause the truck to idle normally, but not be able to take any load. There is a very high failure rate on these fuel pumps.

My s10 pickup with a 4.3 engine starts and ideas but whenyou put it in gear it dies like it has no power at all

Do alternator check to make sure your car is not runnin on battery power only. Your drive belt for alternator may also be loose or damaged. Had the same problem on my yukon and it was a bad alternator. Auto parts stores do free alternator checks.

Car starts but dies whenyou try to run it

You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, fuel pump, or a list of other things.

When excelerating powere died and then stalled out

Check for spark, use a spark tester that can be purchased at an auto parts store. If you have spark get some either or starter fluid and spray it into the throttle will have to disconect the air intake from air filter. If the vehicle starts, the fuel delievery is at fault. If the vehicle doesn't attempt to start at this point, I would assume that you have lost a timing chain. If this proves to be the case, the best approach to this is to find a junk yard trany since debrie usually goes all through the motor and it is cheaper this way. If you don't find any spark, you will want to look for codes that might be present. They will lead you to the fix.
