Motor starts and immediately dies down again. Sounds like a cold start without choke on.

Are there any lights lit steady or flashing on the instrument cluster , security , a lock an car symbol , key an car symbol ? Anti-theft systems will act just like this when there is a problem !

Car dies when it warms up. just replaced carb, think it has to do with this

Vapor lock again! Make sure the fuel lines are away from hot surfaces, or insulated.
Also, when it warms up, the automatic choke turns off, and the idle setting has to be set to run at that temp. There will be idle jets, maybe two, and idle stop setting for the linkage.

Car wont start a car symbol with a lock is on and says service vehicle

Anti theft system has gone defective. You can try using your spare key if you have one, Turn the key to the "run" position and leave it set for 10 minutes or so, shut it off and see if the light goes away, if it does, make arrangements with a good mechanic/technician to bypass the security, if it doesn't you're probably going to have to get it towed to the dealer for repair.
