Another thing, sometimes the computers get freaked out for whatever reason. Something to do with air/fuel and so forth.
When this happens, I put the pedal to the floor before starting and then turn it over. Once the engine revs up to a safe RPM you can let off the gas and let it idle down.
This resets the computer and gets everything back to normal.
Hope that helps.

The truck will start but then die right out. I can do this all day long with the same effect. I can however keep it running by feathering the throttle. if ...
Could be the crank sensor or something in the wiring. Each cylinder has its own coil, so it would be something affecting more than one cyl. If it won't start at all now, you will have to figure out if it is a lack of fuel to the injectors or lack of spark to the plugs, or something else. Are you saying the check engine light does not come on when you turn the key on, or just not when it is running rough ?
you may have picked up dirt from bottom of fuel tank. change fuel filter and see if this helps! if it solves the problem, just put in some injector cleaner in tank to keep system clean.at least 2 times a month, unless the dirt has reached the throttle body and messing it up. check fuel filter first. have a good day !!
there are 2 sensor on the carb . you may need to replace both to find out whiche one it is . try this also give it gas while starting and when it starts you will have to keep your foot on the gas a little to keep it running if it runs that way its one of the 2 senors .
