I have a 98 Silverado I'm having issues trying to get it started. I turn it over and it acts like it wants to then just dies. Replaced filter and fuel pump kicks on. What else can it be?

When was last time you had a tune up and checked air filter, cleaned throttle body, replace fuel filter add fuel injector cleaner to gas tank ?

Filter was replaced a few days ago and pumpm about a yr ago same time as tune up.air filter is new . it starts but dies soon afterwards still feels like it is starving for fuel

What about the fuel injector cleaner for the gas injectors could be dirty ? also check and clean or replace Idle Air Control valve or Mass Air Flow sensor depending on which one is on your vehicle.

Where would those be located. And no on the injector cleaner I'll try that next

Google how to clean those items and the year, make and model of your vehicle and it will take you to a site that will give you step by step instructions on how to do it.

Thanks
