My 1991 S10 pickup will turn over nicely, run for 2-3 seconds than die. If I continue this for 4-5 attempts, the engine will eventually stay idling, while I high rev the throttle. This seems to get the engine warmed up enough that it won't stall and I can back out the driveway and drive off with no probelms while on the road. When I stop again, it fires right up while still hot, but next morning same thing when cold. Fuel pressure is fine, as is pump. Any ideas where to start?
