Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 mustang 4.0 and I'm having a lot of
issues. After the car runs for a while it will sputter
and cut off. The fuel pump will not come on until
after sitting a while. Then it will run fine for another
20 miles or so. Here are a list of things that I have
just replaced on it. I need help please.
New fuel pump and filter
Fuel pressure sensor
Cam positioning sensor
Complete oil change and air filter


Please help me for this problem is very annoying
and I'm wasting money

i had a similar issue with a Taurus. it had something to do with the mass airflow sensor overheating it should be sitting right on top of your air induction hose.. when i replaced it i never heard from that issue again. i would buy the sensor from a parts store that will let you return it if it dont work i found that orileys is pretty good for that. that way if it dont work you wont be out any money. my car was a little older than yours but same issues run in the family
