fuel pressure?...none? this one might have an aggressive panic fuel-shut off button....has someone touched your bumper turnin' off the fuel pressure? Gonna have to research the button for your car~ gimme some time for this--

There is not an fuel pump reset button. There is however an Automatic Shutdown Relay that acts as a fuel pump shutdown. On the 1998 Model: It should be located in the Junction Box located under the leftside of the dashboard There should be a cover over the top of the Junction Box. On the backside of that cover is the identification and location of the Relays and Fuses.

...so we are getting pressure at the fuel rail and presumably injectors?

did it die with a cough-cough-cough...ptanng or quit completely? the reason I ask is "while it was running"...and you have fuel and you have spark...what's left? TIMING...check to make sure the cams are opening correctly look at the position of the sprockets perhaps the timing chain stretched, jumped a tooth and now ain't gonna run~

Just quit completely no strange sounds

there is a kit~

what happens is as the mileage continues, the chain stretches a little bit at a time the "tensioner" runs out of tension and it starts gettin' a bit jiggly...then you run over a bump, or subject the engine to any kind of rapid change and the teeth won't line up correctly anymore...not sure about your design but a "silent cam" responsible for ignition timing could have been affected...puttin' the spark where it ain't gonna help nothin'~

It's not a chain. It's more likely a cam sensor, crank sensor or throttle position sensor.............all of which may not set a code.

I'm having a similar problem 99 Voyager with 3.3L it will start for like 10-15 min then die and wont start again for like 30 min. had code for camshaft P sensor so I changed both cam and crank and problem still exist. got about 50psi of fuel @ the rail injector pulse and spark, but i believe the spark isn't right. when i dies it looks like it spark like once or twice every 5-6 sec of cranking. any ideas?
