May be a bad fuel regulator. Also you may have to do a fuel bleed down test, checking if the injectors are leaking. Another thing to do is to make sure the intake manifolds are snugged up.

Well I got it for free and was told it just died while they were driving. They said it was the fuel pump. Could these issues cause it to just die and have to be towed?
