how many miles on it ?

have you checked for fuel pressure ? do you have 45 to 55 psi on the rail ?

can you have the check engine light s scanned with a diagnostic scanner and get some fault codes

Please let me know

still there ?
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

that is low mileage for it to have a major problem?

is the check Eng light on now & did com on when problem started ?

the 4wd light should not have any effect of what issue you having with it ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
came on while failing but did not stay on while running
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 1 year ago.

We need Fuel & Spark for the engine to start and stay running?

are you losing ground or power on fuel pump at time it dies?

you can check it on the fuel pump relay side or at the fuel pump connector?

is there a red security flashing or steady on the dash ?

Please let me know

Thank You
