See link above. This is fuel shutoff solenoid. Slip it back and see if engine will stay running. You will have to skip it back in to kill engine.

Now need to find out if solenoid is bad. or it is loosing voltage?

Solenoid has to have 12 volts at all times the key is on to keep it from shutting off the engine.
