Are there any type of warning lights coming on at all?

THE ENGINE CHECK LIGHT COMES ON JUST BEFORE IT SHUTS DOWN

Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 3 years ago.
The issue that you are describing is consistent with a failure to one of the fuel injectors that is either not applying enough fuel or to much fuel. The first step would be to have the fuel injectors tested with a balance test.

I ALSO USE A CLEAR LINE FROM THE OUTLET SIDE OF THE FILTER AND NOTICE WHEN AM STARTING IN THE MORNING THERE IS AIR GAPS IN THE FUEL GOING TO THE PUMP.

Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 3 years ago.
I believe you are having a fuel injector problem issue with the vehicle, have those rated as a first step. Thank you.
