The problem is either related to fuel system or the spark plugs and coil pack issue. Get the fuel pressure checked. If its less then its quite possible that fuel pump needs to be replaced and fuel filter is got clogged.
If fuel system checked out all ok.Then get the voltage checked at spark plugs ,the coil packs and the cylinders.Check at all the coils one by one.
If that also checked out ok then its the issue of battery , alternator and starter.
There is a connection problem in any of this.Or its getting short.Check out with meter it should show exact 12 volts.If the battery is properly charged.If the voltage is low then battery needs to be recharged and checked to confirm the fault.
Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

a couple of places to look at would be the carb,(float bowl and needle valve)to see if it might be overloading it with fuel,the other would be the choke weather it be electric or vacume/mechanical, then look at the egr valve to see if is operating right,check the vacume on it also,if u pull a vacume on it, and it does the same thing, that it has been doing then its either going bad or there is a vacume problem.
If it is the fuel overloading it you can check the plugs to make sure,check for a black,sooty build up on them.(carbon buildup)
being as you put a new fuel pump in it it might be possible that it has blown an internal seal in the carb if its the original carb,and that would cause it to stall out till the fuel level came back down in the float bowl.
