I had an 88 bronco that did this the problem was the fuel pressure regulator was not returning any fuel to the tank the fuel would boil in the rail and cause a vapor lock in the rail, check fuel pressure if it is way to high (mine was over 85 pds.) change the regulator and check for restrictions in the return line

Fuel Pump-a possible. The time frame of 30 minutes will vary.
The armature on the pump motor is worn, as well as the tiny bearing,so it seizes or just stops conducting current.
Drop fuel tank and replace. May be able to remove all bed bolts but rear ones, and tip bed up.

I have a 1989 Ford f150 drive for about 30 minutes it dies out or stop and want crank for about an hour


I would unplug the gas cap when it stalls; if you hear a hissing sound, change the gas cap, because it builds up a vacuum in the tank.

1988 Mitsubishi Mighty Max 2.0l auto 120,000mi will die and takes 30 - 60 mins to start?


You would need to figure out if you are dealing with a fuel problem or ignition problem to proceed.
Checking the fuel pressure and for spark at the plugs when it will not start is a good place to begin.
Could be a relay or a long list of other things.

Have it checked out, have the cooling system "pressure checked" and see where the coolant went. When they find that, it may explain the other problems.

Sounds like a plugged fuel filter. You might have dislogged some "crud" when removing the lines, etc... Can't be 100% sure without doing a test on the fuel system.
Good Luck.
