The question is,after that four second,s of running and cutting off,which one is not working, fuel or fire?You may need to check fuel pressure and see if it drop,s leading you to fuel problem,if pressure hold,s look for firing problem such as coil.

All so check your ditsributor for bad rotor or cap.
