Thanks for the reply!!

When it stalls it's either loosing spark or fuel psi or else it would stay runnng... If you give it throttle will it stay running? When did this start? Also what is the ast 8 digits of your VIN?

VIN. 2j106805. Dad give me the truck it was wrecked about seven years ago and it set up on the driver side frontI started rebuilding it about to two weeks ago I've got it all back together and went to fire it up will only run for 15 to 20 seconds and will crank back every time and run smoothI have checked all relays and and firing what is fuel rail fuel rail is pressuring up but it may be losing pressure have no way to test it it does feel out of it

If it's been sitting up then the fuel pump is clogged.. I would grab a fuel psi tester to verify and if it's dropping then I would replace the fuel pump..

Glad I could help and thank you for the positive rating,
