It acts like it runs out of fuel and shuts off have change fuel filter fuel pump pumps up good the computer has no codes it does not even have the 12 code it run good most of the time is worse with the ac on i think it the computer but dont no
Mine was doing the same thing, but it happened to be the transmission module went bad, allowing the car to stall when hot, I removed the module connector out side of transmission. car never stalled again. Engine light will always be on because of it, but no stalling. This module could be replaced, module cost around $50, but the hassle is,that it is located inside the transmission.

Good fuel pressure from the pump is fine, at the pump. But if it can't flow constantly it WILL shut down. Have you though about changing the fuel filter? even a dirty fuel filter will allow enough fuel to the engine to allow it to run for a few seconds or so. When that little bit is gone, can't get enough to still run.
Need more information. Is the engine hot or cold when it shuts off ? Does it do it when idling or when driving ? How long do you drive before it acts up? High speed or low speed Please describe the symptoms with more information. Problem could be anything from water in the gas to bad fuel pump, bad spark plugs ,fuel filter, injectors or ignition coils.
the fuel pump fuse and relay should be in under hood fuse box. the reason why it will not start when hot or run the fuel pump. is the fuel pump relay, is getting hot and shuting off fuel pump. good-day !
Check your running fuel pump pressure. If (as I suspect) it's too low, first try changing your fuel filter. After changing the filter, recheck the running fuel pump pressure. If still low, check you fuel pump pressure regulator. If OK, you may need a new fuel pump.
Also probably would be a good idea to replace you air filter.
Sounds like fuel pump is on its way out. Lower fuel level, or even a good hot day in the sun, may also affect how far you get. With more fuel in tank, it takes longer for it to heat up and start acting up. You'll probably have proper ( or close to it ) fuel pressure in the morning because vehicle, gas & pump are cool, then as you use it, it heats up, and doesn't pump up to pressure, which would be a good time to have fuel pressure tested to be 100% sure. You may get a few more miles out of it by changing filter, but no guarantee's.
Dear Ron, you have replaced fuel pump and fuel filter. You have checked the fuel pump relay. Still no fuel in rail. Try bypassing fuel relay with jumper from batt to fuel pump. If o/k then check computer for ground to relay. This system uses a relay that is operated by the computer that supplies a ground for the relay to operate. The wire color is green,16 gage. If the ground is not available then "no fuel" Check this with a test light. Key on and crank apply test light to ground wire and other end of light to ground. You should hear relay click and get fuel. If this checks out you will need to replace computer or get creative with rewiring the relay so it works without computer input. Good luck Moe
