Check cylinder compression. If low, then a worn engine is likely the issue.

Check to see that you have good(bright orange) spark to the spark plugs the next time it dies... if not odds are its the coil. If spark is good check fuel pressure, since the pump was replaced if pressure is bad the fuel pressure regulator would be in question.

SOURCE: 1987 Dodge Omni 2.2 Engine Carborated. Starts great, runs 3 to 5 minutes and then starts to smoke, load up on gas and shut off. Wait an hour and same thing all over again. All tuned up. Any Ideas?
Has the carb been puled off for a rebuild? If not sounds as though the floats may be out of adjustment or malfunctioning. Also a good kit will help it run better. You'll need the numbers on the carburetor to get the kit. There is either a tag or embossed area on where you can find these numbers. Dodge/Chrysler used Carter branded carbs in the past yours may still be one.
