    have to ask but have you do any recent work on it lately?

    Did it happen within say 10 mins of getting gas?

    Well I'ma put this out there take it for what it's worth..

    My fuel pump died @ around 80k due to a very clogged fuel filter..

    So I'll take a stab @ it being the fuel pump..

    bad gas, fuel pump might be an issue, clogged fuel filter, etc...

    check the fuel pressure at the rail with a small flat-head screw driver, and a couple rags for the fuel that squirts out.

    I'll add that when my fuel pump died and prior to fixing it..

    If I let the car sit for a period and than try it, it would start and then shut down sortly after..

    Try turning on the key but not starting the engine a couple of times with a few seconds wait between tries..

    Durring each try "listen" if you can hear the pump run, or if it sounds strange or makes any sound @ all..

    A normal pump makes sort of a steady mechanical weezing sound then stops after a few seconds.

    My pump would run intermitently then stop and then go again when it died..

    just my further .02

    I had this exact problem a few months ago, it was the MAP sensor. You might check that if you can't find anything else wrong with it. Also this thread might help MAP sensor may be bad. To me your problem seems like a vacuum leak or something wrong with the MAP sensor.

    There is also the temp sensor which runs right under the manifold on the drivers side try unplugging it and plugging it back in or wiggle it around. my clip broke on mine and i couldnt figure it out until i saw it just hanging there, i plugged it in and started right up. lol actually it happened again today and the last time it happened was a year ago...been meaning to getting around and replacong it buuuuuut, lazyness comes into play ha.

    OUCH!!!

    Anyways, my guess is it is going to be fuel related.

    Go rent a fuel pressure tester from autozone if you dont have one.

    I had this problem and it turned out to be my IAC valve, the spindle had ejected itself from the motor
