CHEVROLET EQUINOX FUEL PUMP PROBLEM

2005 Chevrolet Equinox • 120,000 miles

My car works good and no problems when I drive it most of the time. I started having problems with my car when it gets hot which is not overheating but hot enough where its the right temperature for a car that was running for a while. Every time now it gets how the engine for like the normal temperature the car shuts off. I was wondering what could be the problem for why it keeps shutting off. I have noticed it only does it when it gets hot because when the car is cold from the morning no problems until it starts getting hot. I would really appreciate any help because I already changed the fuel pump and it wasn't the reason

What is the fuel pressure when this happens?

I haven't checked it to see if its the same. Is there any other reason it could be or something else I should check also?

I would start here to eliminate the pump before moving to another side of the fuel system or spark controls

I will have to check it and see the pressure. So if your car keeps shutting off when its hot or normal temperature it can mean the fuel system or spark controls are bad or has something wrong with them?

I checked the pressure and it shows me when the ignition switch on is 55 and after 1 or 2 secs goes to 45 and stays there. When I start the car it is 55 or 56 the pressure and when it dies it goes down to 49 to 50 and stays there. That should mean the fuel pump is good right? What else should I check next do you think?
