Question about 1996 GMC Jimmy
You really need some diagnostic information.
For instance, if this is fuel injected, a pressure gauge on the supply side that you can see while driving would yield useful info on whether the fuel pressure has gone away. That would also be helpful if it has a carburetor.
You could be suffering the electronics overheating.
You could be suffering the fuel pump in the tank overheating, if you are equipped with that.
Another thing that you can do is make a arrangement with a repair shop, that you are going to drive till the problem manifests, then immediately have the car towed to them for IMMEDIATE diagnosis. Make an arrangement that when the car arrives they will drop what else they are doing, and look into your car.
Then drive a grand loop on a highway within close distance of that shop.
They then can see whether you have lost fuel supply, or if the electronics have stopped delivering fuel (injectors firing feebly, etc.).
You need to get the car looked at while it is experiencing this problem.
I suspect this will be an easy fix: Fuel pump, or electronic control module, fuel pressure relief valve, fuel filter. I doubt this is an engine-is-broke problem.
