Check fuel pressure in the fuel rail or replace the fuel pump in tank if fuel delivery problem persists.

1990 Aerostar runs and after a short time sputters and shuts off.After sitting awhile starts and does same thing again.Fuel in tank,converter changed,fuel from filter ok.What else could it be?

You would need to treat it like a no start issue when it stops running.
Check for spark at the plugs and fuel pressure at the injectors.
Could be the EEC relay or other electrical component.

Engine starts, but shuts off like the fuel pump is out, good fuel pressure. security light on dash on. ideas?

yes some times a security system will allow car to start and get as far as 5-10 feet and shut down as if out of fuel but the security system acts like it is being stolen. if it is a factory install then call dealer and see if you can overide it with a sequence of procedures.

'90 F-150 with 5.8 engine acting like no fuel to keep engine running. have replaced distributor cap and double checked the fuel shut off valve located underneath the foot petal and still acts like not not...

check you fuel pressure at the fuel rail, if you have pressure (witch i doubt) then look at injectors, otherwise start with the cheap stuff and work up to others, start with a fuel filter and if that dont help look at a in tank pump or the high pressure pump.

Why does my kia sportage start then just shut off. if i try to feed it gas it shuts off even faster. it shut off while on the interstate

sounds like you have a fuel pump going bad ,you need to do a fuel pressure test to verify it has low pressure during the time its acting up

My 03 grand am acts like no gas and wont start.

well, something is blocking your fuel line, try replacing the fuel filter and clean the fuel pump, rust might be blocking it. if you have time try draining your fuel tank too then get rid of the rusts. this will surely help
