ENGINE DIES

2000 Dodge Neon

Electrical problem
2000 Dodge Neon 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 115000 miles

I have a 2000 dodge neon that is giving me trouble. It runs perfectly fine for 30-40 minutes then just all at once dies. There will be a small hiccup a few moments before it dies but no other warning such as a check engine light or any thing else. I don't have access to see if it trips a code or not. I don't trust the car to drive it very far. It will not start again for a while. After everything cools down it will start and again run for a short time, then dies again. I have tested the fuel pressure on the end of the injection run at the engine and it holds 48-50lbs steady and will not lose pressure after it dies.

Any ideas?
