Hello, please reply tomorrow with any diagnostic trouble codes that are found, this will save a lot of time and guessing as to what the problem may be. I also need to know if it's the V8 or V6 engine.

You said it runs a few seconds then turns off, does this keep repeating? Can you start it again right after it shuts off and then does the same thing again?
