CHEVY COLD START

1999 Chevrolet Silverado

Engine Performance problem
1999 Chevy Silverado V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 114000 miles

I have a 1999 Chevy Silverado 2WD 5.3L. Won't stay running. Starts up just fine when cold, then about 15-30 seconds or 1 minute later, engine starts bogging down and quickly dies. You can tell that the computer tries to compensate air/fuel mix to keep it running but something is causing the engine to finally quit, Especially when you depress the accellerator it really dies fast.

First, you need to check for any trouble codes.
