Thank you for the info. It sounds like you need to replace the frame mounted fuel pump. They are known to fail this way. They work correctly when the vehicle is first starting. As the pump warms up is losing pressure until the vehicle stalls. Once the pump cools down it will work again for a few minutes. Replacing the frame mounted fuel pump will fix this concern.

is it very hard to replace?
Expert:  James replied 1 year ago.

It isn't. There are three nuts that hold the pump on the frame. The hardest part is getting the lines disconnected. You will need fuel line disconnect tools. You can get a set from the part store for about $10
