Any trouble codes?
How long does it take before it restarts?
Any other repairs apart from the fuel pump?

Sometimes days before it will start again then when it does u let it idle for about 10you min then it just shuts off and wont restart. Ive changed inertia switch, ignition mod, coil pack, pcm, and fuel pump. Think maybe crank sensor is bad?

When it fails to restart, you need to check what is missing.
