Also maybe the sock filter in the gas tank with the pump could be getting clogged.

not sure if it is and it only been happen when real hot out too and if u take the gas cap off it has press. blow gas fumes but has been doing this for awhile not sure why

The only way to be for sure is when the vehicle shuts off do the fuel pressure test right then it will at least confirm or eliminate if that is the problem.
