Question about 1995-1997 Chevy 1500 Truck Ignition Starter Alarm Switch
Acts like not getting fuel, checked fuel pressure, it is good. changed fuel filter. will start but cuts out and dies. when turn key off then turn back on will then start.
Seem like your fuel pump can't keep up the pressure when engine is started. If you have a pressure regulator that isn't into the pump assembly i would change it if not then your going to need a new fuel pump assembly.

try putting a dab of solder on each one of the contacts on the fuel pump relay. i had a similiar situation where the relay contacts in the fuse box got strectched out over time so i put a dab of solder on each terminal to beef the contacts up and it worked perfectly. i think this will work because if the mechanic put a wire jumper in the contacts then electrical it is fine.

I had a wiring harness that grounded out my computer on the exact same truck, fortunatly mine fell under warrenty. Fixed a bare spot in the harness, it was a hot wire feeding the computer.
Hope this helps.

Change the plugs, and plug wires first before suspecting coils. Then if no change, suspect coils, and if still no change, suspect a fuel injector. If you have a check engine light lit, you may be able to get a code from the diag computer (can be read for free from autozone I think) that tells you the exact cylinder that's misfiring. Then you can narrow your suspected choices down and focus on that cyninder for the coil and injector.

You have to check when the engine is stopped if it is missing spark or fuel because the engine is stopped for lack of spark or fuel to be able to verify that a better diagnosis. Thank you

Sounds like you're loading up with fuel. I'd check the fuel pressure regulator. Some engines are set up with a regulator inside the intake plenum, which requires plenum removal.
