Im re-read the o.p. and still can't help but wonder if this is fuel related.....esp. because it is hard to start,but then when it does, it rev's to 3k then dies....sounds like (i'm grasping here) either fuel pressure slowly building, then uses up fuel at rails and quits,or possibly rattled the fuel pickup/sending unit from curb, not sending propper fuel/pressure up front.
I agree with Breeves though, we need some input from the codes you have.
