CHEVY CUTS OFF NO FIRE

1991 Chevrolet S-10

Engine Mechanical problem
1991 Chevy S-10 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 90000 miles

engine diies after you drive it for a few miles. Replaced distributer a couple months ago. Ran ok for a week or so then started cutting again. Replaced coil and plugs, ran ok for about three weeks now started doing the same again. Note you can let it set for a while and it cranks and runs again. Also you can spray starter fluid in it when it quits, doesn't have any affect on it.

With an extended crank, have helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check fuel pressure. Any applicable mil codes?
