Sounds like the fuel system is losing pressure. Try this, turn the key to the run position but don't try to start it. Count to 5 and turn the key off. Repeat a second time. Now try to start it. If it fires right up, which I believe it will, the fuel system is definitely losing pressure. Most common cause of this is a dying fuel pump. There's a check valve in the fuel pump assembly, in the gas tank, that wears out. My '03 S-10 Pick Up has been doing the same thing for several years. HTH. -Jim

Yes, it could be just sticking at the moment. As time goes it'll get more consistent. Thank you for the best answer click as well!! -Jim

    I have a 99 Tahoe and in park the engine sounds beautiful. But as soon as you put it drive it won't run over 10 mph. Then it stops and starts over from 0 mph back to 10mph.
