I have almost exactly the same problem. My '89 Comanche (247K miles) occasionally just dies and won't start for a few min. Then suddenly all is well. I can tell you that my problem was not the fuel pump,
the most expensive of the things I have replaced in trying to fix this problem. If you figure it out, please post the solution!

Well, I have the same problem. My '87 comanche with 195k miles starts and I drive about 10 miles or about 5 minutes and when I stop in a intersection, the engine stops; sometimes I can start again the engine if I put the acelerator to the end for about 30 seconds, or just waiting about 3-5 minutes, the engine has his services ok, and runs good but the problem still there.
