It is a little difficult to tell without more information, but I had similar symptoms. Mine would start, then die in about 3 seconds. I found that if I held the metering plate down, it would continue running. I then got a pressure gauge to measure the cold control pressure. This show WAY high. I took the Warm Up Regulator (WUR) out and disassembled and cleaned it. I then measured the cold control pressure. It measured 1.5 BAR at 50 degrees F. This was within the range for my motor. I then started the car and it continued running.

Not well, but I have narrowed that down to a vacuum leak. New hose comes in tomorrow.

Good luck.
