Fuel injected engine. It has electric fule pump, do you here the pump when you turn on the key when it is cold? Do you here the pump when it starts acting up? The electric fuel pump may be failing.

I have not listened for the fuel pump when it starts to loose power, I can turn it off for a couple of minutes, start again I hear the fuel pump run normal. start the engine, runs good for about 5 in then looses power and runs rough.

Fuel pump would be subject to do that!
