Customer Question

I have 1999 Firebird that was running great until yesterday. I drive to store no prob. I park engine idling and it died(like out of gas). It starts but Will only stay running a couple seconds and die. Changed fuel filter, checked fuses, truer starting with spare key. Still just start and die right away. What could be causing this and how to fix it?
