Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that can cause the engine to die and it will require some testing to determine exactly what is going on. You may be losing spark, fuel, it's possible that the engine controller itself may be going down due to an internal failure or a loss of power or ground.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool or code reader to see if any fault codes are setting. Have you checked for codes?

There's no codes showing up .I have fuel pressure at the intake .one person said it is the E C M sense it's not giving me a code

What is the actual fuel pressure reading?
Have you checked for spark?
