Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are several things that could cause the engine to die and it will take some testing to determine what is going on. If the fuel pump has been replaced then it's more likely that you're losing spark than fuel, but you coudl be losing both due to the engine controller going down.

The first step in diagnosing the problem was to use a scan tool or code reader to check for fault codes. Do you know if any codes are setting?
