this vehicle needs to have the new ignition switch reprogramed to the vehicle by the dealer as it is a anti theft system so no one can steal the car without the ignition key it shuts down the fuel injectors after a few seconds. good luck.

The van will start and run for about 2 seconds and quit i changed fuel pump,filter,distubitor,cam and crank sensors and module

Gm vehicles have been known to have faulty anti theft security systems. One of the symtoms of this is when your vehicle starts for 1-5 seconds and then stalls. A good way to know if this is the problem is when you see a light on the dash that says SECURITY. If you see this light flashing or on solid, this explains the van not starting.

Car starts but dont stay started has new fuel filter

If it starts up, and then dies, possibly fuel filter just put on might have vapor lock, or maybe fuel pump is not pumping , working or clogged fuel line.

Turn key can hear fuel pump run turn key to start my truck startes for two seconds and die do it three or four times will start will dun good for a week a do it again will run good three days do it again ...

Could possibly be the anti theft system. Check out this link. When the SECURITY fails, you should see a light on the dash that says security. A symptom of a failed anti theft is starting for 1-5 seconds and then stalling repeatedly.

Starting for a second or two is quite possible that the passlock system is causing it. I've seen this happen before. There are a lot of videos on youtube about bypassing this system. Have a look. bypass GM anti theft YouTube
