After searcing for answer to this problem myself. IT'S THE COIL!!!!!! I put in a 400 fuel pump, fuel filter and $400 cat converter and the problem was a $35 part!!!! Runs like a dream!
My Chevy s100 2001 acted like it was out of gas. It would die while going down the road. I could put it in N and it would start back up. It started getting worse but bucking and stalling when turning corners. Finally it would go about 5 miles and die and just wouldn't start. I had top mechanics looking for the problem and an OLD shade tree mechanic fixed it in 5 minutes! The coil is locted right on top.

There has been issues with fuel hoses leaking under the intake plenum, not sure yours has them, check it out. 4 cyl man myself.

Im 90% sure its a fuel injection problem. Fuel injector. SES code: p030x ? Those trucks have a "spider injector" system that gets clogged up. I changed mine and it ran like a champ after. Its an expensive fix, but i did everything you did and had no results.

hi i have a 2003 chevy s10. it seems not to have the power it use to. when i get on freeway or been driving for while it slows down to 10to25 mph and when i hit the petal i dont see the rmps on dash go up. it feels like no power, when i gently hit gas petal it slowly gets going but never over 30 unless been sitting for while. idk what could be. wondering if anyone had this problem b4. i cleaned the mass air flow sensor wirh crc but it didnt do the trick. any ideas? thankyou for any help you can provide me with.

Have you check the fuel side of it / pump / filter etc / are the sparks clean or dark or moist / I am not a mechanic but have a s10 with 210k miles ;o)

hi ty bud, i got new filter, cant believe how much it was lol, used to paying 5 bucks for one, this one was 40. i also got a new thermostat. do u think it could be the catalacconverter? it sounds like something is lose in it, but im confused can it be that or fuel filter cause of it seems to go slower when it gets hot, first it goes normal, then slows to about 300, then slows to 10 and wont go over 10 or a crawl unless i let it cool at that point. it got this smell too. i was wondering if the catalacconverter would make it do that. i think it does on freeway faster cause im getting englne hotter faster. idk i try filter and thermostat and see what happens. another thing im also confused about is the indash gauges arnt showing it getting hot but i can certainly smell it. ty for ur help

check coolant level. I assume the oil pressure even at idle is above 7-15 psi.
What is likely is that the intake manifold gasket is seeping coolant into the lifter valley causing the lifters to rattle. replacement of lower intake manifold gaskets will likely repair this issue.
