Default wont stay running

Yesterday, i started my truck and it died twice before i even got out of the parking lot. I hobbled home with my foot constantly on the gas. If i didn't give it lots of gas it would die. Anyone have any ideas where i should start. I'm a bit of a do-it-yourselfer-er
Thanks Lila

Do you have a check engine light pop up? Is it having trouble starting or just running? We need more information on your truck too

no check engine light. It starts fine, but dies after a few seconds. It's almost like it's starved for gas. Fuel filter? Water in gas tank? What's your take?
