Does it act more like it is being turned off or like it is losing power or running out of gas?

its more like tuned off,it seems to loose injecter pulse
Expert:  Neal replied 5 years ago.
It could be the fuel pump is failing intermittantly, if the pressure drops the injectors will not fire.

I am going to opt out and see if another expert can be of more help, or has any ideas as I feel I cannot help further online. No need to respond back to me as it will just lock me back on the question. If another expert can help they will reply.
