SOURCE: starts wont stay running
without seeing it here is my best answere, do you have the ability to pull codes if the cam and crank sensors are functioning properly ( no codes for them) i would then check the fuel pump fuse and relay . do you have fuel getting to the fuel rail . if u have a guage to check pressure at the fuel rail it should be above 30lbs , if you have no pressure and your fuses and relays are good then you have a pump problem provided you have not been in an accident , i believe that vehicle has a safety shutoff that might be located in the trunk .

check the connections at the battery, make shure there is no corrosion,also check that the ground wire from the bat to the engine is in good. if you have an ohm meter check the wires themselves,should show no resistance, please rate my fix,check back if you need more help Ray

Did you replace the fuel filter? Have you checked the pressure from the fuel rail? Check vacuum hoses for cracks? Check vacuum pressure and engine compression? Check fuel pump relay?

Get under your gas tank and follow the lines. one of them should lead not far away from the tank where most filters are located. When you change it remember to release pressure by take loose the gas cap...and have some rags ready to catch some overflow.
