interstate..it dies..gas pedal to the floor but it runs very rough

Customer Question

I have a 2002 landrover freelander that quit running goin down interstate without warning. It will now start and run for about three seconds,then it dies. You can keep it running by keeping the gas pedal to the floor but it runs very rough. I have replaced the vis motors,the mass air flow sensor,and the fuel pump. It show dtc's of misfires on 2,4,6, and throws in a mass air flow dtc. i managed to get a running diagnostic and it only shows faults on fuel 1 and fuel 2. They both show to be off line. I'm now at a loss as to what may be causing the problem.Please help!
