Possibly a fuel supply issue. Will require a fuel pressure tester. Could be in tank pump or a bad fuel pump relay. In a quiet environment, turn key on (not start position ) and listen if you can hear the guel pump run for 1 or 2 seconds.
check gauges means that the car senses something is not working properly, such as temp gauge reading to hot ,or oil pressure reading to low ,fuel to low, its to get your attention that something is wrong .
First of all, why do you think it is fuel at all, since it could be the ignition? Second is that if the car shuts down, how do you know it is not simply a clogged fuel filter? A bad pressure return regulator can blow out fuel pumps by causing the pressure to be so high the pump over works itself.
I suggest you need better data. A fuel pressure gauge would be nice. You could improvise one out of a cheap mechanical oil pressure gauge. You could also run some long thin wires to the fuel pump relay output or even to the pump itself, and hang a little LED off the dash as a temporary diagnostic indicator light. To catch an intermittent, you need constant data.
hi, sounds to me that either the fuel pump is going out or the fuel pump relay is acting up. the cheapest way to check the relay first by simply swaping the relay with another relay in the power distribution box under the hood (swap it with the A/C relay)
