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.

Do you
