Question about Cars & Trucks
You are losing either fuel or spark. Need more details, why is it not starting? You imply it is running ok for a few miles. I'd expect an excess of current being drawn by one of the circuits. Which one? That is why you have to know WHY it won't start so you can investigate that particular circuit.

That means the transmission is going into Limp mode - something's wrong that is making the car believe it can be damaged by the speeds the upper gears will allow you to reach. For starters, check the fluid level (or just change it - it's not a bad idea), and disconnect the battery for an hour or so to put the ECU into relearn mode - this will clear current fault codes and allow you a fresh start to see if the condition reappears, or if it was a fluke failure of some part that caused the car to repeatedly go into limp mode.

low fuel pressure can be caused by fuel pump or pressure regulator. The regulator is on the upper side of the engine and looks like picture below. Check the vacuum hose all the way to see if it has a loose or broken connection. The regulator is much easier to replace that the pump, so I always recommend one replace the regulator before the pump. If you know someone that can check the fuel pressure before the regulator, you can actually determine which part is bad.
