    your vats system is probably going out, mine did the same thing for a while until it finally wouldn't start at all.

    i've never tryed fixing a vette, but it probably is about the same as fixing an f-body,

    heres an old thread from when mine went out: (videos dont work anymore but all the info needed to fix it is there)
    I'm fixing my VATS

    I would check the fuel pressure, sounds like the pressure is bleeding down in the pump.

    Good luck
