I have a 1990 Buick century will run for 2,5 min. then cut off.

(1990 Buick Century)
in Asheboro, NC on December 15, 2014
Before car shuts off it splutters like its out of gas. Checked the fire on 1n4 no spark. I replaced the coil now has good fire but still does the same thing, also checked the fuel pressure and it was 40, even had the ECM tested and was good. Oh I even dropped the converter. Just wondering about crankshaft position sensor and what else could it b. If its the cps, is there a simple test and do u have to pull plate to line it up. I'm no mechanic. TKS stumped

I had the same problem with my 90, to find out it was my MAF and also my fuel pump was bad. After I had gotten both of those replaced, my problem disappeared.
