Any Suggestions? 1995 Mustang Just shuts off

I have a 95 V6. When I crack the car, it will run for about 3 to 5 minutes and then just shuts off. I'm guessing that it's something to do with the fuel system b/c voltage is good. I already change the fuel regulator and that didn't correct the problem. Can anyone give me some advice on what else I can do to fix the problem. Thanks.

Not sure if this applies in your case but had a similar problem with my 99 4.6. Initially it died at a gas station with the anti-theft light flashing. Had it towed to a shop and they said it started just fine. They kept it a few days and said it reported a misfire, and replaced one of the ignition coils. It did not seem to me that this could have been the problem but it did fix an intermittent stutter during acceleration. One week later it started diyng at random even while driving, but would die for only a second or two, since the car was in gear. When idling it would just die. After another week at the shop they found it was a broken wire in the wiring harness under the battery tray. Had to do with broken communication between the ECM and the instrument panel which does the anti theft key validation.

does all of your lights and everything stay on when it dies becasue if they do then i would think it might be the fuel pump going out on you

I'd second the ECU problem...it seems like the fuel pump, but they typically die once and stay dead.

i got the same problem with my 95 try a tune up and have them run a scan test for any trouble codes. if that doesnt help try the fuel filter, then the fuel pump thats wat i am doin but i ran out of money which sucks but anyway try that and let us know how it helps u so i can try wat u did..... that must be a common problem wit the 95. just to know is it a coupe or conv?

Bad alternator and the alt light is burnt out? The alt light is a picture of a battery. It should be lit with key on, engine off.
