I know it's not at Av, but close enough.

I carpool with a friend from work, and he is having an issue with his 2002 Silverado (5.3l).

He can start it up, it will run from 5-30 seconds, starts to idle rough,  then stall.  Wait a few minutes, then it will start again, rough idle, stall, etc. 

He was driving it when it happened the first time, then has not got it to run for more than 30 seconds since.

He replaced the fuel filter thinking he got some water in the line.  Fuel pump appears to be working...

He is at a lost, any ideas?

Unfortunately the check engine light is not coming on, nor are any trouble codes being reported.

If engine stalls or sputters it tends to set a code.... have it checked anyways....at local auto parts store..

Sorry for not being clearer.  The check engine light is not coming on.  Also he borrowed a scanner from Autozone, which did not show any stored codes.

Check fuel pressure at rail.
did this happen after recent fuel fill?

Check wire and connector on Throttle position sensor. (usually throws code)

Check plug wires (Doubtful)
check plugs (doubtful some more)

Has he done any mods at all?
