Check engine indicator light is on. I thought I was out of fuel as was running on fumes. When I added more fuel the next day it ran fine for 15 mins then the same thing happened.

it started after i removed fuel pump ran 10 min turned it off for 2 hours would not restart i checked spark ok has fuel, relays are good ,it has a vacuum thing on the front of the fuel rail it has pressure up to there (does it need a certain amount of pressure or could that vacuum thing be bad )when key is on should the fuel pump return line have fuel in it
