Let it set till today came out it started let it run till it reached run temp about ten minutes it just died like it was turned off now back to same thing will turn over but not start. Note when it quit key was on and fuel pump was for a sec then it to turned off. When I try to turn key engine will crank tach does not move. Some times when cranking it over tach is still unless it happens to hit once and it will jump then back to nothing. I got the car after someone else tried fixing it, it's had mas air flow, coil packs, plugs, ecm all replaced already the only code was random misfire. Any idea

Also the starter was about burned up when I got it replaced starter took a week for them to get one put it on and it started and ran the same till it got up to running temp approx ten minutes then dies and won't start. Turns over great hot battery, won't hit a lick?

First thing you need to do is to find out what is missing when it could not start. The link below should be helpful.

Since problem is temperature related, I would suggest checking the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor.

Thought to have it all figured out, after running the car for some time it would get up to running temp and die, noticed fuel pump was not running after it died and wouldn't start back let it set and cool off pump would work again, so I figured it was bad fuel pump. Replaced fuel pump was starting and running great. Took it out for test drive ran great for about 7 miles then started losing power and running rough took it back to shop found cylinder 4 was dead hole. Pulled wire connector from coil pack with no change in roughness, pulled coil pack put plug in it to test for spark, and it has spark cylinder 4 is dead hole come and go? Note: has new fuel injectors too any ideals thanks Robert

Check the compression of the cylinders for a start. If compression is low or none at all, it could be caused by fault with the valves.

New injectors or ignition coil might not wbe working correctly if the is a fault with the wiring circuit. You would need to check those as well.
