Nothing has changed, it was running fine, now it just starts but dies after a few seconds. I check all the vacuum hose I could see.

check your oil sending unit. It can do the same thing. your oil sending unit sends a 12 v to the fuel pump relay.

check your fuel pump relay see if you have 12 v to the relay. start the car and see if it turns off. the 12 v to the relay if it turn off the oil sending unit bad.

Disconnect and check your fuel line to make sure the pump is working fine. Also, check the fuel filter. It would not be a bad idea to replace it anyway. Remove your air filter and check for any obstructions.

The relay is in the engine bay, you will see on the left side near the deck lid hinge two identical relays. One is the fuel pump the other is for the A/C. You can try swapping them around and seeing if that solves the problem.

CNL is on the right track. My guess is the fuel pump relay or the oil pressure switch.
To bypass the oil switch, join the two wires together.
To bypass the fuel relay, join the #30 and the #87 terminals.

Yes that would be my next step Jim. Then crank the car and see if it runs longer.

I replace the oil pressure sender. Disconnected the gas line and turned on the fuel pump and it pumps well. Checked the fuel rail at the injectors and there is good pressure. I was able to get it to run at 2000 rpm for a while but I had to pump the throttle very fast. The engine runs very rich and wants to die.

Any ideas?

I have the dash apart but did hook up the gauges. The check engine light is on but doesn't always come on when you turn on the key?
