confused Help: Engine Stalled after Started

Hello,

The engine of my car (99 CVPI) stalled after started.
It did run for 1~2 seconds before it died. The "Check
Engine" light was off when started, but turned on after
stalled. Tried again, still the same problem. Adding
a little gas when started didn't help. Checked the
engine oil level, seems fine. Battery seems OK since
I can start car every time. It just can't keep running
for more than few seconds. The car ran very smoothly
before that, and I hadn't driven it for a week.

Do you guys have any ideas of what might go wrong?
Your help is greatly appreciated!

The only thing I can think of is a cracked vacuum line or maybe some sediments floated down the gas line and clogged the fuel filter, had that happen once, car was driven on a hard and bumper dirt road, sat for about 10 days, pulled the filter and tons of junk came out.
