1998 4-Runner 3.4L 4X4 dies while driving

Sitting at a light and it died. Restarted while waiting for the light to change. Died again. Tried to restart again and it was more difficult to restart. Turned around to go back home and it died as I was driving. This time it was much more difficult to restart. Has 142,000 miles on it and all maintenance is done by self.

Hello;
Check your fuel pressure. Sounds like the pump is going away on you. Also change your fuel filter. Fuel pump is in the tank, filter is on the frame rail. Hope this helps; rate me highly.
Thanks;

Check the Fuel filter, And Also Check the Fuel Pressure for what your 4 Runner calls for, Not to mention Did you Buy Cheap gas for a Gas station that you Normally Dont use? Might have Watered down gas..

A Stupid But Sometime working Item is to Tap the Fuel Filter a few times with the back of a Screw driver to knock the "Dirt" in the Filter around and see if it start as normal,

If So Replace the Filter, But at 142,000 your about Due for a Fuel Pump..
