You really need a fuel pressure gauge, run it in the driveway until it stalls, and see if you lose fuel pressure. Check the oil, if it's too low the sensor will shut off the fuel pump.

At smog shop guy says 4 problems saying not ready go drive car for 50 miles.did that and still saying not ready


The car has to go through a certain number of driving cycles (start, drive, shut down) after the computer has been reset or the battery disconnected for an extended period of time before it will be ready, sometimes 50 or more depending on the vehicle. You could drive 1,000 miles and it wouldn't make a difference. Take your car on multiple short trips, around 15-20 minutes each, letting it sit for a while in between. Just starting and shutting down the car won't count either.

1998 FORD Mustang 3.8L Auto. This car has been sitting for 2 years Has 80,000 miles. the Fuel pump has been replaced along with all filters, vacume cannister, plugs and wires. The car has started to loose...


Was the fuel tank cleaned out when the pump was replaced? You could be sucking up garbage from the bottom of the tank to the fuel pump strainer causing the loss of power, Then your shut it off and the garbage comes of the strainer and you have power again

Stalling


Possibly faulty ignition module is the problem, stalls when engine is hot when you sit for a while it cools off and runs again until it heats up again, those are usually the symptoms of a bad ignition module and after a while it may give out all together and not run at all, usually if the module is at fault it shuts down the fuel pump so the engine don't load up with fuel, do to when engine continuously cranks over the injectors never stop squirting fuel and flood the engine do to lack of spark which is produced by the module, this could possibly be your problem.

Fuel pump relay


If this happens every time you start your truck and it shuts off the same each time, you just might have a dirty fuel filter only allowing so much gas pass through until it clogs once again. I once had a chevy van, when I would drive it, would go a few miles and engine would shut down.   I would wait 10 or 15 minutes, it would start up and allow me to drive a few more miles then shut down again.  I changed the fuel filter, It was fine after that.
