There are several things that can cause this, from a split vacuum line to a broken hose or defective EGR valve to a defective timing advance diaphragm in your distributor.. You definitely have an over abundance of air in your engine and the repair could be cheap or expensive. I think first I'd inspect the motor, looking closely over the intake system for a missing vacuum cap / hose, broken hose, or fallen off hose. If nothing found, get a couple cans of carb cleaner and carefully and methodically spray down the intake, along all vacuum lines in a 1 second burst. Listen closely for an increase of RPMs - if the engine races stop and closely look where you just sprayed because you've just found the vacuum leak. Repair that leak and continue on until you've covered the entire intake / vacuum system - don't forget to check the lines going to the various canisters and components under the hood.
Hope this helps!

Car dies after it warms up, no pressure in radiator when i remove cap, and acts like it's starving for gas


Some of the information does not correlate.

If there is no Pressure, then you Radiator Cap is Bad

Stalling or Starving for Gas can be a Fuel Pump or Air Filter

Remove the Air Filter and see what happens.

Test the PRESSURE of the FUEL System

This could be a bad ground on the ECM. When it is in park it is open loop. When you put it in gear, the ecm goes closed loop with the oxygen sensors and with no ground it dies.

I have to keep pumping the gas pedal to keep the engine running, it acts like it is starveing for fuel.then after it warms up a bit it will run at an idol. then when i step on the gas pedal it boggs down...


2 things to try-
first- change fuel filter(maybe this- is cheap)

second-more likely given what you said- partial melted catalytic converter-
when it warms up- passage expands enough to let it run a little
