91 chevy Astro van marry Miller

(1991 Chevrolet Astro)
In a trade I received a 91 chevy Astro van that had been sitting for about a year. I don't know anything about them. The battery was no good so I replaced it and it cranked right up and ran. After a handful of starts it's stopped holding an idea. It will crank and kick over after a few long turns of the key. But it only lasts for 2 seconds before it stalls out. I've tried popping it into gear to move it a but but dies as soon as I put it into any. I can keep it running if I tap the gas every few seconds. I checked the ODB and it pulls no codes. I looked at what I guess you would consider the fuel injection and both are spray fuel into the engine. Maybe I'm about to replace the fuel filter then pump if it doesn't work. I'm trying to not put a lot of money it since I wat to get rid of it. Any thoughts are appreciated. If im going down the wrong cheak list please let me know.
How long have you had this problem? A week

Sorry to hear you issues. So basically you need to start with the basics, like fuel pressure, check your plugs and wires, check the throttle cable and throttle body for sticking. You could also have bad gas so that's something to consider.

I've got thought everything and it's all good. I still can't get it to idle. The only way is to tap the gas repeatedly and once I stop it dies. The odb is pulling no codes. it says everything fine.
