Car will stay running for about 10 minutes then die, we have replaced the fuel sock, fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator, fuel pump relay, idle air value, crank shaft sensor, egr value, throttle positioning sensor, and map air flow sensor. Car was running fine until this happen. Check engine light is not on. Only code that comes up is random miss fire. Vehicle is a late 1999 model. Sometimes will come up as a 2000. Any help or suggestions would be wonderful.

Check the fuel pressure fuel pump could be failing when it heats up it breaks-then it repeats when cool for a bit-

Any word on this yet Richard? If not, try checking fuel pressure and spark when the problem occurs.

With fuel pressure gauge tester, pressure was about 42, but when I tap on mass air flow sensor car died right away. Think car has about two problems. Maybe fuel injectors?

It sounds like either the mass airflow sensor is either faulty or improperly plugged in(loose wires or connectors).

42 PSI sounds like it's in the ballpark.

Check the wiring from the coil(s) to the ECU and grounds.
