If you feather the gas pedal will it stay running? If so I would check for dirty/faulty idle air control valve or dirty throttle plate.

I have tried feathering the gas pedal, still turns off. I did notice that when I unplugged the camshaft sensor it still does the same thing. I thought the engine was not suppose to turn over at all. Checked to see if it was magnetic. It was not. Still starts, then shuts off after 2 seconds. Any other suggestions?
