Have the fuel pressure checked. Should be at 55psi and not leak down when turned off

Also it runs fine @ times you just never know when. So if that happen it mean I have a bad fuel pump?

It could, or the regulator. The fuel pressure test will rule it out.

Ok So I check pressure and yes it's leaking down when turned off not holding. So it means I have a bad regulator or Pump

Yes, you can take the upper intake off and see if regulator is leaking. It is on the back of the injector unit. If it's leaking there will be a clean spot underneath it. Otherwise it should be rather dirty. If that checks out then it's the pump unless there is a break in a line somewhere.
