My C2500 starts but will not stay running. I have a video of what it is doing. The ECM was saying the air intake valve sensor was bad. I replaced it, the fuel filter, spark plugs, coil, wires, entire distributor with ignition module cap and rotor. Seems to be getting enough fuel and spark. Runs smooth. If I give it gas it chokes out. I checked the TPS and it is working. Baffled.
Do you
have the same problem?

This sounds like you have an EGR valve that is not closing all the way here is a video of how to check the valve once you remove it.
