Hello, my name is***** for the question. If I am not online when you return please give me some time to get back to you. Can you tell me how long the vehicle runs for before it turns off. How long do you have to wait until it will start again?

Thank you. It sounds like the fuel pump is shutting down. This can be from the fuel pump itself failing or most of the time on this vehicle it is due to a problem with the circuit. Possibly the fuel pump shut off. Can you hear a buzzing from the fuel pump when the key is first turned on? Do you happen to have a fuel pressure gauge?
