1997 expedition dies after starting

1997 expedition 4.6l 4wd starts and then dies almost immediately. Any ideas on where to start?

Any tune-up performed? Sounds like weak fuel pressure.

Once it starts, slightly press on the gas pedal to raise the idle. Does it still stall then, or only at idle?

I had the same problem. If I gave it gas it would stay running. If I let it idle it would die. I had a bad IAC, idle air control valve. I replaced it and that fixed the problem.
