Lacckof fuel supply to the engine. Please follow the check up of the fuel , purity of fuel, fuel filter, fuel pump and settings.
Remove and clean the fuel delivery section to confirm.
If fault stays checck for the firring, intensity of the spark. If not check coils, spark plugs.
but I think the fuel can be the reason.

My Venture starts for a second then dies, even if you continually give it gas it dies. any advice please

The fuel pump normally only runs for a few seconds when you turn the key on. It will usually turn on again when the engine is cranked over. Then when the oil pressure is safe it will continue to run. Sounds like your fuel pump could be getting weak. Was there a check engine light on before all this happened?

When you start the truck it cranks over and runs normal for about 10 seconds before it slowly starts to die out. the other thing is when you start it just like the the first problem i said above it when...

It sounds like a weak fuel pump. You would need to have a pressure gauge to hook up to the exit end of the fuel pump to test the pressure. A call to a tech at a local dealer could give you what the proper pressure should be. I'm thinking it should be 35-40 lbs. If the pump is weak it may have enough gas to get started, but as it runs, the pressure bleeds off, so it doesn't send enough fuel to the engine causing it to die. If you push the accelerator, basically the same thing happens, it tries to jump up the pressure and can't keep up. If you don't have the proper tools or gauge to do this, it should be examined by a mechanic.

Well you could have definetly run out.

As far as the fuel pump, there are lots that depends on if it was damaged. First off a fuel pump should never be run dry, damage CAN OCCUR. Second, if your car is up there in miles the fuel pump may be weak and not giving enough fuel, or you ARE IN FACT, out of fuel. Next, if the car is up in miles, and after you put gas in, and it runs fine...problem solved....and I wouldn't worry much about it, excpet for the fact that the fuel pump will fail sooner or later...allmost all do after 100-200 thousand miles on the car. If you put gas in and it till it doesnt run anymore. But try to keep fuel in the tank to get the best possible life from your fuel pump.
