I'd guess: not enough fuel flow. could be a fuel filter, fuel pump, fuel pump relay, fuel pressure regulator. No check engine codes? I would think there should be some that would help diagnose.

Sounds like the fuel pump going bad. You will need to check to make sure you have the correct fuel preasure for at least 10 mins. You can find a fuel preasure tester at any auto parts store. Same thing happened in my 2002 Escalade, replaced the fuel pump for around $650.00. Good luck

You indicate the fuel pump was replaced, but did you replace the fuel filter? A clogged filter can restrict fuel flow to the point the engine literally starves for fuel and smothers out.

Also would be a very good idea to check fuel pump pressure at the intake manifold. Also might want to check fuel pressure regulator.

Good luck!

My s-10 will all of a sudden die after driving down the road for a while. After a few minutes it will start again


Your fuel pump may be going bad. If the fuel filter is dirty, it will restrict the flow of gas and heat up the fuel pump causing it stop working till it cools down. Change the fuel filter first and see if the fixes the problem, also have Auto Zone check for any DTC codes just in case if it's something else other then a bad filter or fuel pump. Good luck and keep me posted.

Yes a fuel filter can cause the problem but I would say it's most likely the fuel pump or fuel pump relay. Can you hear the fuel pump running when you turn on the ignition?
