Question about 1985 Nissan Pickup
Our truck recently started this problem. It would run fine for about 10 minutes or so and then lose power and die. We would wait 10-15 minutes and it would start and do the same thing over again. We were wondering if this could be the coil causing the problem or something else. Thank you in advance.
Yes it could be the coil or a number of other electrical components.
You would need to figure out if you have lost spark to the plugs or fuel pressure when the engine quits. It could be a relay, the fuel pump, the coil or igniter, or a long list of other things.

Sounds as if it may be the fuel pump has unhitched inside the fuel tank. I will explain....The fuel pump is contained in a housing and when all together slides into receiver built into the inside bottom of the fuel tank. 2 ways it can come loose, previous repairs to the pump causing it not to be installed correctly or vehicle being in an accident and the impact causing the pump assembly to slide out of the "holder". When not in correctly, the pump will be just kind of sitting in the fuel with the fuel pump pickup pointing wherever instead of in the correct position facing towards the bottom. This is why (in my opinion) you are experiencing the problem with less than a 1/4 tank. I would recommend checking this first as its the most likely cause. Hope this helps and please rate this.

It will likely be the crank sensor, usually fitted next to or behind the bottom engine pulley. A common failure is for the sensor to stop sending a signal when hot, and the engine will stall immediately. After a time, it re-starts but will cut out again when the sensor gets hot again. These sensors are easy to find and replace, and not usually expensive.
