RANDOMNLY SHUTTING OFF

2004 Pontiac Grand Am • 100,000 miles

Ran the car out of gas last week never had a problem right after that happened it shut off twice ran for a few days and now once you hit about 40 mph it shuts off randomnly I replaced the fuel filter drove it all over the town and nothing happened I hit the highway it immediately shuts off any suggestions? I hear the fuel pump kicking in and if u let the car sit five minutes it starts right back up

Fuel pump gets it lubrication from fuel, so check for bad pump.
