More than likely your fuel pump is going out.we have had a run on these lately.very common for this model.hope this helps.

When the fuel pump starts heating up it will shut down.would replace fuel filter also.cant gaurantee this is the problem but it is common.if you have replaced pump relay.would go with pump
