Could be many issues. Have you checked the fuel filter? Air filter? Is the service engine soon light on? Please be more specific.

Rebuilt trans in 2014 rebuilt 4.3 v6 3/2017 car was idling rough abd boggin. Took to mechanic who did adjustments on idle .told me i n=d to change tps,iac valve,map sensor. I changed map, iac. Idle is not so rough still have to warm car up with acceleration to avoid backfire. Previous engine(same type) had blow gasket on freeway old engine have valveseal leak would kick up blue smoke after startup.im thinkng i should change cat,o2,tps,iat . Any advice? No codes popped up on diagnosis with jumper on obd1 port(a to b)

It cranks but soon as I press gas pedal the car cuts off.
