Could be many reasons for this. Spark plugs, air filter, dirty carbys, point gap incorrect? Many things can cause this, you just have to work at them one at a time to eliminate each cause. Best way to tell if the cause is from sucking air,, try leaving the choke on, and see if it does the same thing. Leaving the choke on will richen the fuel mixture and compensate for too much air. If the problem persists, then i would be looking into the carbys for the problem.

1999 chevy silverado 5.3 starts then dies out

check to see if you can hear a loud sucking sound (air) going into the throttle body when the engine starts then dies. if you hear alot of air being sucked into the throttle body, replace the Coolant Temperature sensor located close to the thermostat housing on top of the intake manifold. If this $12.00 part goes bad, it will cause the same symptom you have described. You can check the sensor for correct reading by using a scan-tool.

You need to clean the carbs, your pilot jets are clogged, make sure you are thorough about cleaning every jet and all passages when you do this or you will have the same problem

Had a similar problem with my '85 Caprice Classic with the 305cc. Turned out to be a bad throttle body gasket on the carborator. It was "sucking" in too much air. Replaced it and haven't had any trouble now for months.

My flymo maxi trim 430 fires but won't run and just dies after a few seconds

If you have some starting fluid spray, a little into the carburetor and see if it runs. If it comes up but then dies, there's a fuel supply issue. Check for leaks in the tubing, a plugged fuel filter and be sure your carburetor is securely fastened to the motor. Any leak keeps it for sucking the gas into it. Your gas tank needs to have a vent to let the air in to replace the gas coming out but it usually takes a while for this to kill the engine so it'd be last on my list. Good luck.

Did you sync the carbs and adjust to pilots after you cleaned them. Did you check for the correct fuel level in the carbs?

you need to look for rotted soft vacuum hoses that need replaced,any vacuum leak will increase RPM,but that is not helping engine performance or gas mileage

My car idle dips to low RPM at a stop i give it gas it dies

Is the engine light on? Check the air inlet hose between the throttle body & MAF sensor for cracks or leaks. Try unplugging the MAF & see if there is any difference
